Lane closures on Manning Drive begin May 9

An eight-week construction project beginning Monday, May 9, will force the closure of two lanes of traffic on Manning Drive adjacent to the Craige Parking Deck. Through traffic will be maintained on Manning Drive, though motorists should expect some delays, particularly during rush hours, and should plan accordingly.

Weather permitting, the project should be completed by Sunday, July 17.
