Thanks to Hutch-N-Son Construction, one of this summer’s major construction projects has been completed two weeks ahead of schedule: Newman Road is now open to all traffic after being expanded from two lanes to four as drivers approach the intersection with McMillan Road. Vehicles traveling along Walter T. Cox Boulevard (Hwy. 93) can now reach Perimeter Road through Newman. The expansion will ease congestion as travelers enter and exit campus. With Newman now open, the entrance to McMillan along Perimeter will now close.
McMillan Road will continue to see construction through the fall semester as upgraded infrastructure is installed underground. Crews will be working along McMillian Road from the intersection with Newman Road toward Cherry Road. Portions of McMillan Road will be opened as the work in that area is complete. Residents in Calhoun Courts and Thornhill Village should use Morrison Road to reach the apartments in the area until construction along McMillian Road passes the entrances on to Dunavan Road, Omicron Pi Street and finally, Mills Rd.
