In addition, Juniper south ofPendle Roadwill close from June 28 to late July to re-route a section of Juniper directly south toDouglas, adjacent to the Notre Dame Federal Credit Union.Motorists coming to the Notre Dame campus are advised to use alternate routes, such as U.S. 933 orIronwood DrivetoDouglas.
