Closure - Walnut Street, from Old University Avenue to Campus Drive, starting 04/15/13

April 11, 2013

The City and its contractors are planning to begin construction on Walnut Street on Monday, April 15th. The project will consist of the installation of a major storm sewer tunnel, replacement of concrete curb and gutter, drive aprons and new asphalt pavement.

To facilitate the construction, Walnut Street will be closed between Old University Avenue and Campus Drive.

The street will be opened up for the Crazylegs Classic event on Saturday, April 27th, and then will be closed again. The project is expected to last until end of August.

Access to all businesses will be maintained. Sidewalk on at least one side of the street will be open at all times.

Motorists are encouraged to use alternative routes to avoid delay during this project.
