Algoma Blvd remains closed and will remain closed while they continue to update utilities from Wisconsin St to W. New York Ave. Crosswalks and accessible access areas to get across Algoma Blvd will shift regularly so please stay alert and only use designated areas.

Pedestrians cannot walk on Algoma Blvd between loads, excavators, dump trucks, and other equipment that is actively working in the area. This type of behavior is very dangerous and could result in a serious injury to the pedestrian. Pedestrians who don’t follow proper signage are in violation of the law and could be stopped and cited.

High Avenue from W. New York Ave to Osceola St is two-way traffic. High Ave continues to be one-way traffic from Congress Ave to W. New York Ave and from Osceola St to Wisconsin St.

May 16-20, 2022 – Crews are expected to pave High Avenue with permanent asphalt. Traffic is allowed to operate on High Ave while this is happening.

The entire project is expected to be completed by Nov. 11. Impacted campus facilities 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

  • The restricted access driveway leading to the Theatre Arts building will be further restricted
  • Oviatt House, driveway access and parking area is will be restricted
  • Sidewalks along this stretch of Algoma will be removed in conjunction with construction

As the construction progresses, the campus facilities outlined above will have periods of time where they cannot be accessed. This means that Algoma Blvd should not be driven on by students and employees unless they are operating a garbage trucks, maintenance vehicles (that can only access required work via this road), police vehicles, and essential delivery vehicles should be operating in the construction zone. If you aren’t sure about whether you should be driving on Algoma Blvd, the answer is that you probably shouldn’t be.
