Campus Gateway and Prospect Road Improvement Project

road

Stretches of  Prospect Road and North Odom Street are closing due to a $5 million makeover to improve pedestrian and vehicular safety.  The project will improve traffic safety with the use of medians and two roundabouts. For pedestrians, there will be crosswalks traversing lanes carrying slower traffic and sidewalks on both sides of the road.

The project is scheduled to be complete by fall 2019.
