Lanes along portion of University Boulevard to temporarily close

Two lanes of University Boulevard will close from March 13th  through August 4th along an approximate one-half mile stretch from the University Boulevard and Bryant Drive intersection west to the area near the University Boulevard and Second Avenue intersection (near Arby’s).

The road will not close as two lanes will remain open, but traffic flow will be impacted. Initially, the westbound lanes will close for construction, but traffic will be two-way on the eastbound lanes from March 13 to May 27.  Once the westbound construction is complete, two-way traffic will move to the westbound lanes, and eastbound lanes will be closed for construction.

UA will replace the road’s concrete slabs with asphalt and add medians, landscaping, a transit lane, a bike lane and make lighting improvements. This project is Phase II of a broader initiative to re-pave University Boulevard from McFarland to downtown.
