Work on campus perimeter road construction nearly complete

Author: Dennis Brown


Douglas Roadbetween the newNorth Twyckenham DriveandSt. Joseph Driveon the northern edge of the University of Notre Dame campus will be closed from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 22 (Saturday) to finish the widening ofDouglasto four lanes.

In addition, a new section ofJuniper Road northofDouglaswill open to traffic July 26 (Wednesday). Both schedules are subject to weather delays.

The opening of Juniper north ofDouglasmarks the completion of Notre Dames commitment to the community to construct a new campus perimeter road network that will permit the permanent closure on July 26 of the section of Juniper that bisects the campus. The plan was approved two years ago by bothSt. JosephCountyandSouth Bend.

A portion of Juniper north ofEdison Roadwill temporarily remain in place as an access drive to the parking lots south of Notre Dame Stadium and theJoyceCenter. A series of campus improvement projects are planned next year that will result in the complete removal of the former county road within the Universitys boundaries.
