Morgantown W.Va. — Please be advised that beginning July 5, 2016, Evansdale Drive will be closed to all vehicular traffic near the Mineral Resources Building. The road closure will remain in effect until August 5, 2016 to allow for road construction to improve pedestrian safety to that area. See map of the construction area to be closed to traffic.
During this closure, all traffic wishing to access all parts of the upper campus including all of Engineering, NRCCE, the Evansdale Library, Agricultural Sciences, the Greenhouse, Ag Science Annex, Blaney House, and Allen/Percival Hall, are to enter and exit the campus via the East Entrance at University Ave and proceed along Evansdale Drive. The gates at the Evansdale Residential Complex will be open during this period. Please proceed with caution through that area.
The current bus stop and loop at the Mineral Resources will be permanently removed as part of this project. The new bus stop is located adjacent to the Evansdale Crossing and Short Term parking lot 9. Busses are to begin using the new gated bus lane below the PRT to drop off and pick up passengers on July 5th.
Pedestrians will still have access to the upper campus around the work area during construction. Please follow the marked walkways.
It is anticipated this construction near Mineral Resources will be completed by August 5th to allow traffic to begin re-using the road thru that end of campus, barring any significant weather that could hinder construction.
Thank you for your cooperation during this brief interruption.
