Road to connect Lake, Pitkin opens

Updated Nov. 13 A road linking Lake and Pitkin opened this week, giving vehicles a route from the west end of campus south into the city. The road is one-way south for vehicles, and two-way access for bikes, pedestrians and emergency vehicles. The temporary road is on the west side of the fence surrounding the stadium building site. It helps alleviate congestion on the west side of campus for traffic leaving Morgan Library, Hartshorn, Aylesworth Hall, and residence halls on the southwest side of campus. The road will be in place for about two years, when it is anticipated that it will be replaced with a more permanent route.   Updated Oct. 23, 1:20 p.m Facilities management will begin construction on a road that will link Lake and Pitkin in early November. The road will be finished in late October. The road replaces access that was formerly provided via Meridian, giving vehicles a route from the west end of campus south into the city.
