A section of Bancroft Street is slated to close early next week so crews can install a new sewer line.
The city of Toledo plans to close Bancroft Street between University Hills Boulevard/North Towerview Boulevard and North Westwood Avenue from Tuesday, Aug. 8, through Thursday, Aug. 10.
A detour via Secor Road to Dorr Street to Parkside Boulevard will be established in both directions.
The intersection of University Hills Boulevard/North Towerview Boulevard and Bancroft Street will remain open during those three days.
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 30 days, 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 on Bancroft Street during peak times, visitors to Main Campus are encouraged to use the west entrance off Secor Road or the south entrance off Dorr Street.
