New Edison/Angela roadway to open July 5; Notre Dame Avenue to be restricted for a month

Author: Dennis Brown


The realigned portions of Angela Boulevard and Edison Road adjacent to the University of Notre Dame campus are scheduled to open July 5 (Tuesday), the same day that Notre Dame Avenue from Angela to the Main Gate will be closed for about one month for construction of a new ceremonial entrance to the campus.

The newly constructed Angela/Edison roadway extends betweenIvy Roadon the east andNotre Dame Avenueto the west. The old road between those points will close, though entrances to parking lots south of theJoyceCenterwill remain open.

Destinations alongNotre Dame Avenue- including the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore,MorrisInn, Eck VisitorsCenter, McKenna Hall andHesburghCenterfor International Studies – will be accessible via a detour on the north side of theDeBartoloCenterfor the Performing Arts betweenEddy StreetandNotre Dame Avenue.

Notre Dame Avenueis expected to reopen Aug. 9. Inclement weather could delay both the opening of the new Edison/Angela and the reopening ofNotre Dame Avenue.
