University Avenue
The contractor is building access structures at Highland and Walnut and prepping for new curb and gutter and pavement. 
Inbound Campus Dr will be closed to one lane near Walnut St. The two outbound lanes on Campus Dr will be maintained at all times.
Severe congestion is expected during the lane closure for peak traffic hours, and motorists are encouraged to use alternative routes to avoid delay during this project.
Walnut St is currently closed between University Ave & Campus Dr.
Highland Ave westbound lanes are closed.  There will be one lane of traffic in each direction between University Ave and Campus Dr in the southbound lanes.

The University Avenue Corridor has been through various states of reconstruction from Allen Blvd. to State St.  The pavement throughout this corridor was rated in very poor condition.  While the pavement was being repaired, the City also reconstructed many sewer and water pipes under the ground that date back to the late 1800's and early 1900's.  As of 2014, there is one segment of the corridor left for reconstruction (Shorewood Blvd. to University Bay Dr.). This segment is not currently scheduled for construction at this time.  More details will be provided as plans develp for this segment.
