Utility, safety improvements may affect your routes during the next few weeks
It may be a little challenging navigating the Clemson University campus in the next few weeks because of utility and safety improvement projects.
Road closings may affect how you travel to graduation or basketball games, so check the closing schedule below and Facilities’ interactive road work map.
Fort Hill Street
Traffic on Fort Hill Street will be limited to one way going east from Klugh Avenue to Calhoun Drive from Saturday, Dec. 14, to Dec. 30.
From Dec. 30 to Jan. 1, Fort Hill Street will be completely closed to traffic from the Trustee House to Calhoun Drive.
Cherry Road from Bryan Circle to McMillan Road is closed now through Dec. 23 for the installation of underground utilities.
The final phase of the project will begin in mid-December and will require the complete closing of the intersection of Cherry Road at Bryan Circle through early January. No traffic will be permitted through the intersection. Traffic will be able to reach Calhoun Courts from the east via Morrison Road.
Perimeter Road will be closed between Cherry Road and the entrance to the C-01 parking lot from Dec. 14 through Jan. 7 for the installation of underground utilities.
Walter T. Cox Boulevard (Highway 93)
Construction on Walter T. Cox Boulevard from mid-December until early January will cause some disruptions near Sikes Hall and Calhoun Drive. The three-phase project will begin with the southbound lanes being closed and two-way traffic in the northbound lanes. There will be no access to Calhoun Drive at this time.
Phase 2, beginning at the end of December, will shift to the middle lanes. Southbound vehicles will be able to enter Calhoun Drive and vehicles leaving Calhoun will be able to turn right.
Phase 3 will be in early January. The northbound lanes will be closed and southbound lanes will be open for two-way traffic. Vehicles exiting Calhoun Drive will have to turn right until the project is finished.
Hunter Hall sidewalk
The sidewalk to Hunter Hall and the auditorium will be closed for repairs from Dec. 17 through Jan. 10 for pedestrian safety improvements.
Calhoun Drive access
New gates installed on Calhoun Drive will prevent traffic access between Fort Hill Street and Gantt Circle in front of Brackett Hall except to approved vehicles beginning with the spring semester in January.
The gates were installed to reduce the volume of traffic in the heavily congested area and to improve pedestrian safety.
Approved vehicles, such as Tiger Transit buses, emergency vehicles and delivery trucks will carry transmitters that signal the gates to open.
