LANGDON STREET AT MEMORIAL UNION TRAFFIC PATTERN CHANGES

August 12, 2013

Langdon Street in front of the Memorial Union is currently closed to both directions of traffic. Park Street will also be closed between University Avenue and Observatory Drive. These closures are necessitated by utility work on the Langdon Tunnel Project being undertaken by the UW-Madison.

As a result, access to the parking lot below Helen C. White is from the west via Observatory Drive.

To provide an additional Campus exit as traffic increases into the fall, on Thursday, August 15th, Langdon Street traffic will reopen to eastbound traffic ONLY in front of the Memorial Union between Park Street and the Memorial Union parking lot. Current two-way traffic between the Memorial Union parking lot and Lake Street will be maintained. This traffic pattern will continue until October 30th.

On October 31st, Langdon Street and Park Street are both scheduled to reopen to two-way traffic.
