Ohio University traffic update 

Ohio University crews with Facilities Management have been hard at work completing several construction and renovation projects over the past months, as well as attending to emergency repairs on some of the streets around campus. 

Though crews wrapped up many projects in time for the fall semester opening, there are continuing construction projects and road closures that could affect your travels around the Athens Campus. They are: 

Wolfe Street – This road is permanently closed as part of the University's Master Housing Plan. Motorists can detour up University Terrace to Race Street, or follow South Green Drive along the back side of South Green, turn left on N. McKinley Avenue, turn right on E. Mulberry Street, turn right on Stewart Street and then left on East Union Street to connect with Jefferson Hill. Parking that was previously available in the Wolfe Street area is now available under the South Green garage. 

University Terrace and South Green Drive – A three-way stop is now in place near the Ping Recreation Center and Clippinger Laboratory. 

South Green Drive at Oxbow Trail - The site of the future multipurpose field house on South Green Drive will change rapidly over the fall as crews erect the steel structure serving as the main building. Construction traffic, including large trucks and equipment, will be moving in and out of the area daily. 

Park Place - The east end of the north side of Park Place (near Alden Library) is closed while emergency repairs are performed. The south side (near the president's residence) is open to traffic. 

Richland Avenue Bridge – Athens city crews completed work on the bridge that spans over Oxbow Trail in time for Move-In weekend activities, but the area may close at a future date for additional work. Watch for posted signs and detours.
