Construction for the two-lane road that connects Kellogg Drive and Eucalyptus Lane has finished and is now open for use.
The road creates a direct path toward buildings such as the Bronco Bookstore, Children’s Center and University Housing’s five Residential Suite buildings.
Students, faculty and university vehicles will frequent the road to gain access to those buildings and to utilize the accessible parking options for handicap drivers and campus guests.
“I’m excited for that area to be easily accessible again with this new road,” said fifth-year plant science major Diego Palomino.
“It makes dropping my daughter off at the Children’s Center much easier.”
This road will be much easier to use than having to go around the new parking structure, go behind the BRIC and then park in parking lot G.
The road does not connect directly to the Suites, parking lot P or lot Q.
Police and parking and transportation services can be expected at the intersection at Kellogg Drive, and warn drivers to not use the new road as a raceway.
“With this being one of the busier streets, we’ll be here monitoring the flow of traffic,” said Corporal Don Nyeholt.
For now the road looks like a tunnel with the fences along both sides of the road, but that’s due to the many-implemented construction projects we have on campus.
The new road is specifically a part of the student housing replacement project which is expected to be finished by 2020.
“This road is the next step in our development plan for the student housing replacement project,” said Mooris Taylor director of facilities planning and management.
The next items of construction that are expected to be done include the new student services building coming in the Fall 2018 semester, and the first phase of the new student housing in Fall 2019.
Kellogg Drive was moved eastward last August to give the construction team more space to fit the future housing facilities.
The horse pastures were also adjusted to make room for the road and the upcoming construction projects.
