Due to the repair of a storm sewer line under the Convocation Center parking lot and Shafer Street, excavation will require that Shafer Street and a section of the Convocation parking lot be temporarily closed beginning at 7 a.m. on Friday, May 6. 

Detours for O’Bleness Hospital will be on SR 682 to West Union Street, while University detours will be on the north side of the Convocation Center at West Green Drive. Detour signs will be posted directing traffic on the appropriate route. Local emergency traffic will be maintained for O’Bleness through the Convocation parking lot as needed.

Repairs are expected to be completed by 7 a.m. on Friday, May 27, weather permitting. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ohio University Facilities at (740) 593-2911. Facilities regrets the inconvenience and disruption caused during the construction.  They will post updates as the work progresses and try to have the street re-opened as soon as possible.
