MSC Streets Renovation

Bus at MSC

Transportation Services will begin renovating several streets in the area surrounding the Memorial Student Center. This renovation project will take place in multiple phases with Phase 1 beginning Dec 18.

The following streets are included in the MSC Streets Renovation Project:

  • Joe Routt Blvd.
  • Gene Stallings Blvd.
  • West Lamar St.

Transportation Services will provide regular updates as the work progresses.

Phase 1: Dec 18, 2017–June 4, 2018

During this phase Joe Routt Blvd. will be closed from Wellborn Rd. to the entry of Cain Garage. Access to the MSC loading dock will be maintained for authorized vehicles only.

To access Cain Garage

  • Turn onto Old Main Dr. from Wellborn Rd. then turn right onto Gene Stallings Blvd.

To access Wellborn Rd. from Cain Garage

  • Northbound – Bypass the bell tower and use Jones St. to turn right onto Wellborn Rd.
  • Southbound – Use Old Main Dr. near the bell tower to turn left onto Wellborn Rd.

To access George Bush Dr. from Cain Garage

  • 4pm to 6am – Bypass the bell tower and use Houston St. to turn onto George Bush Dr.
  • 6am to 4pm – Use Old Main Dr. near the bell tower to turn left onto Wellborn Rd., then turn onto George Bush Dr.

Transportation Services would like for you to make note of the following and plan ahead when traveling in the impacted areas surrounding the MSC for Phase I:

  • Construction in the area will cause continued traffic congestion and travel delays surrounding Joe Routt Blvd, Gene Stallings Blvd, and West Lamar St.
  • Delays can be expected while traveling to/from the MSC, Cain Garage and other parts of campus
  • Bus routes may experience long-term travel-time delays due to traffic congestion
  • Entry/Exit to Cain Garage will require additional time due to traffic congestion

We appreciate your patience during this large road rehabilitation and as long-term improvements are made to our campus.

Details about phases 2–4 will be posted as they become available.
