West Drive closed to through traffic - Jan. 23 - March 30

West Drive (from Manning Dr. south to Mason Farm Rd.) will be closed to through traffic from Monday, Jan. 23 through Friday, March 30 due to construction of a vehicle bridge from the Cardinal Parking Deck (PD Zone) to the Imaging Research Building (IRB).

Motorists are asked to plan accordingly.

Barricades will be placed at the northern end of West Drive, and a monitor will be on duty to allow access only to permit holders entering the Cardinal Deck. Detoured traffic should use East Drive or Columbia Street to reach areas normally accessed via West Drive (see map below).

Delivery vehicles must use the service zone and loading dock area between the Mary Ellen Jones Building and the Thurston Bowles Building. Access for all deliveries is from eastbound Manning Dr. only. Private vehicles picking up passengers on West Dr. must use an alternative location.

Transit routes will NOT be affected; all buses will service regular stops on a normal schedule. Pedestrians may enter West Dr but only up to the Lineberger Cancer Center entrance.

Call the Department of Public Safety at 962-3951 during normal business hours with other questions or concerns.
