NOTICE! All American Closure - January 2017
The construction of the new STEM building on All American will require the closure of All American Drive between Hill Drive and University Avenue. The closure is expected to start in early January to enable the relocation and construction of the utilities needed for the new building.
NOTICE! January 2017 Bus Changes
Beginning on January 3rd, 2017, when the University reopens after the holiday break, the Yellow and Green bus lines will begin running new routes on campus due to pending construction on All American Drive. Both lines will no longer circle campus but will instead approach one of two bus stop locations and then will head back off campus. This will accommodate the need to close All American Drive and will limit their travel inside campus and reduce bus interactions with pedestrians and stop-and-go traffic.
The Green Line will provide service from the Old Taylor Road area with pickup and drop-off on campus at the Kennon Bus Terminal only. The Yellow Line will provide service from the Anderson Road area with pickup and drop-offs on campus at the Union Bus Stop only.
Similar to the Kennon Terminal, the Union bus stop will become a major bus terminal by the fall of 2017 when the new section of the Union building opens. At that same time an internal campus bus loop will start operation.
The Yellow "Express" will continue to run its current route providing service to Campus Walk and Hathorn Road but will have a second bus added and run through 9:00 PM weekdays. The line will be renamed in the fall since it will no longer be associated with the Yellow Line.
Signs will be placed at all stops that will be affected by these changes. Please feel free to email email@example.com for any questions.

Phase II of the construction of the North Residential Parking Garage started in June. The new parking facility is slated for completion in the summer of 2017 before the start of the Fall 2017 semester. The new structure will have at least 1500 parking spaces.
