The next phase of the Algoma Boulevard Reconstruction Project is set to begin April 13, weather permitting. This phase of the reconstruction will include completing the storm, sanitary, water, tree removal and concrete pavement replacement. This phase of the project is expected to take roughly 25 weeks. If you do the math, 25 weeks takes us into September/October however, the road pavement is tentatively scheduled to be completed prior to September 1, 2022. As the project continues we’ll have a better idea of how the project timeline will impact our campus operations.
There are several areas of our campus that will be impacted by this phase of the project however, the impact will be for smaller windows of time over the next 25 weeks.
Impacted campus areas will include:
- Algoma Blvd will be closed to through traffic
- Lot # 18 (Scott Hall), the access to and from Algoma Blvd will be restricted at times
- Lot # 37 (Lincoln Hall), the access from Algoma Blvd/Lincoln Circle will be restricted at times
- Lot # 15 (Blackhawk Commons), the access from Algoma Blvd will be restricted
- Lot # 4a, south access will be restricted
- 15-minute street parking on the Algoma Blvd side of Reeve Union will not be available and loading dock access will be restricted
- Access to the restricted area between Albee Hall and Dempsey will be further restricted
- The bus stop at Algoma Boulevard and Woodland Avenue, will be closed
- The bus stop at Algoma Boulevard and Osceola Street, will be closed
- The restricted access driveway leading to the Theatre Arts building will be further restricted
- Campus sidewalks along Algoma will be removed during this phase of the project
As the construction progresses, the campus facilities areas outlined above will have periods of time where they cannot be accessed. Also, the intersections at Woodland and Vine avenues will each be closed to through traffic while utility work crosses each road, respectively.
Please continue to be mindful and look both ways before crossing Algoma Boulevard and High Avenue.
The project continues to impact GO Transit bus routes as several inbound route No. 5 and route No. 10 stops along High Ave are closed. Buses are using sections of Algoma Boulevard for both inbound and outbound trips. More details about stops and route detours can be found in the GO Transit app or on Go Transit’s Facebook page.
