The intersection of University Hills Boulevard and Bancroft Street will be closed later this week as installation of a new sewer line continues.

The city of Toledo plans to close the northbound lanes at the intersection near the University’s main north entrance Thursday, Aug. 17, and add the southbound lanes to that closure Friday, Aug. 18. If all goes as scheduled, the intersection is expected to reopen Wednesday, Aug. 23.

Main Campus will be accessible via North Towerview Boulevard and Bancroft Street. The Driscoll Alumni Center will be accessible via Douglas Road and University Hills Boulevard.

After this portion of the work is complete, lane restrictions will begin on Bancroft Street and continue to move westbound to Meadowwood Drive until the sewer line project is finished. Traffic will be maintained in both directions during this time, which is estimated to be about three weeks, weather permitting.

“We will keep the campus community informed as we receive updates from the city of Toledo on this project,” Doug Collins, director of grounds and transportation, said.

To avoid congestion, students, employees and visitors to Main Campus are encouraged to use the west entrance off Secor Road or the south entrance off Dorr Street.
