As part of the Aggie Up Town development project, the eastbound lanes on University Avenue (between Telshor Blvd. and Terrace Dr.) will be closed to traffic. A detour will be in place to direct traffic around the construction zone. In addition, westbound traffic will remain in place but will be reduced to one lane. The detour and lane closure will begin on Monday May 11, and will last approximately two weeks.
For the public’s convenience, one westbound lane will always remain open. The lane closure will not affect RoadRUNNER Transit routes.
The City has verified that no conflicting public or private construction projects will take place in that immediate area during this time. Access to businesses and residents will always be maintained.
For more information, call the Public Works Department/Construction Management at 575/528-3098. The TTY number is 575/541-2182.
