As installation of a new storm sewer line continues, it will be necessary to close west-bound lanes on Bancroft Street.

This closure is scheduled to start Tuesday, Sept. 26, and is expected to last three weeks, weather permitting.

During that time, a detour for west-bound Bancroft will be posted for drivers to take University Hills Boulevard to Douglas Road to Dorr Street to Secor Road.

Lane restrictions for east-bound traffic on Bancroft Street will continue.

“We want to remind drivers the speed limit in the work zone is 25 miles per hour,” Doug Collins, director of grounds and transportation, said. “We ask everyone to be patient, drive slowly, and be aware of pedestrians.”

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.

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