Two projects on Bancroft Street will mean traffic by the University will be a bit slower for a few months.
Lane restrictions between University Hills Boulevard/North Towerview Boulevard and Parkside Boulevard for the Bancroft Street Road Reconstruction Project are slated to begin Monday, July 24.
Traffic will be maintained in both directions during this project, which is scheduled to be complete in November 2018.
In addition, there will be a sewer line installed on Bancroft Street between Meadowwood Drive and Westwood Avenue. That project also is scheduled to start Monday, July 24.
This work will require closures of University Hills Boulevard and Bancroft Street for three to five days, according to Doug Collins, director of grounds and transportation.
He added UT officials have met with members of the Toledo Division of Transportation and requested the closure take place before Sunday, Aug. 20, and the start of fall semester.
“We will announce when that closure is scheduled and keep the campus community informed as we receive updates from the city of Toledo on these two road projects,” Collins said.
Visitors to Main Campus can continue to use the north entrance off Bancroft during the reconstruction, but are encouraged to use the west entrance off Secor Road or the south entrance off Dorr Street to avoid traffic congestion due to the projects.
