Inner Campus Dr Repaving

The University will be undergoing a repaving project on Inner Campus Drive (ICD). Beginning December 16, 2019, Centennial Construction will be repaving ICD from Painter Hall (PAI) through Garrison Hall (GAR). The projected completion time for the repaving is currently January 30, 2020.

December 16, 2019 – January 30, 2020

  • Access through ICD will be maintained throughout the repaving project.
  • Campus should be aware of narrow lanes along ICD for the duration of the project
  • Parking along ICD will be temporarily lost.

As always, PTS would like to remind the University to be aware of your surroundings and yield to pedestrian foot traffic along construction areas.

Guadalupe Street Corridor/ West Campus Sidewalk Improvements

In the West Campus area, the City of Austin’s Corridor Program Office is improving safety, connectivity and access for pedestrians by rehabilitating sidewalks, improving curb ramps and filling in gaps in the existing sidewalk network.

Improvements will be made to:

  • Nueces Street
    • East side, south of 26th Street
  • 24th Street
    • North side, between Guadalupe & Nueces streets
    • A new pedestrian crosswalk and signal will be added at San Antonio Street
  • 26th Street
    • South side, between Nueces & San Antonio streets

Construction is expected to begin as early as Dec. 21 and should be complete in Jan. 2020. Work will occur Mon. – Fri. from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m., and will require intermittent daily travel lane closures during non-peak traffic periods. The temporary closure of some driveways may also be needed to facilitate driveway reconstruction. Work may also occur at night or on weekends (if needed) to expedite completion of the improvements.
