The intersection at Bancroft Street, University Hills Boulevard and North Towerview Boulevard is scheduled to close for two weeks starting Friday, May 11.

The city of Toledo announced the closure as replacement of the road on Bancroft continues.

Detour signs will be posted, and electronic message boards are alerting drivers of the closure.

Students, employees and visitors to Main Campus should use the west entrance off Secor Road, the south entrance off Dorr Street, or the east entrance off Douglas Road.

Local traffic will be able to use Bancroft up to the closure; however, no traffic will be able to travel through the intersection.

This will allow for both north and south lanes of the street to be replaced, according to Doug Collins, director of grounds and transportation.

If all goes as scheduled, the intersection is expected to reopen Friday, May 25.

While the city is replacing the road at the intersection, the University will work on North Towerview Boulevard, which is scheduled to be closed from Bancroft Street to East Centennial Drive through Monday, June 11.

“We thought it was a good time to repave North Towerview Boulevard, add a sidewalk to the east side of the road to align with the new crosswalk that will be added to Bancroft Street, and make some landscaping enhancement,” Collins said.

Access to parking lots 1N, 1S and 2 will be maintained during the project, he added.
