During the work day, traffic will be rerouted to South Chapel Street; detour signs will be posted and flaggers will be on hand to direct traffic at the intersections on Academy of Lovett and Courtney.
Pedestrians and UD employees and visitors will still be able to access the buildings in the area -- Alison Hall, Perkins Student Center, Thompson Hall, Lane Hall and Penny Hall -- as well as the Perkins Garage and parking areas near Penny Hall. Those wishing to park in the Perkins Garage will need to need to access the garage from the south, taking either Courtney Street or East Park Place to Academy Street.
