Transportation Changes

  • Beginning Tuesday, May 21, the Mallinckrodt bus plaza will close for repairs, as part of a larger construction project on the stretch of road from the bus plaza to Hillman Hall. The estimated completion date is August 15.
  • During this project, the bus plaza will be relocated to the front of Simon Hall. All Metro and university shuttles will use this location. View the temporary bus plaza route.
  • Olympian Way will change to allow only southbound traffic. Anyone wanting to get to Seigle Hall or the athletic complex, will need to enter at Wallace and make a right turn on Olympian for access.

On May 20, the West Campus shuttle will be rerouted as follows during construction. Leaving West Campus, the bus will travel east on Forsyth to the Steinberg circle drive. Exit heading west, to a new temporary stop, located on Forsyth, just before reaching Goldfarb Hall. After drop offs/pickups, the bus will proceed to the temporary bus plaza in front of Simon Hall. Bus will exit via Olympian Way to Forsyth and return to West Campus. Buses will run every 15 minutes.
