A message to the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh community from Acting UW Oshkosh Police Chief Chris Tarmann:
The Algoma Boulevard project is moving along, but pedestrian traffic on the roadway is hampering construction.
Effective immediately all pedestrian traffic on the roadway must cease. Pedestrians should find other routes around campus, including walking on the grass near the buildings along Algoma.
Orange construction barrels mark the only legal paths across Algoma. You can find those areas marked in green on this map.
UWO police officers will be monitoring pedestrian traffic and violators may be cited.
Pedestrian traffic on the roadway is illegal and a safety hazard. We are asking for your cooperation so construction can proceed safely and on time. The sidewalks are expected to be completed within the next two weeks.
We know the project has impacted your ability to efficiently get around campus and we appreciate your patience as work has continued this fall. The project will greatly improve the roadway and sidewalks through campus when it is complete.
