Reopening of West Rocket Drive delayed

Two-way traffic on West Rocket Drive is expected to resume Wednesday, July 18.

“We apologize for the delay,” Dan Perry, electrical manager with Facilities and Construction, said. “We had a set back with the sloping of the road and need to remove more asphalt to make it right.”

Traffic can still enter lot 12 by the Law Center, lot 26 by the Student Medical Center, and lot 26E by the Horton International House from the north.

And drivers can continue to detour around the construction via Secor Road and through lot 25 by Rocket Hall.

Crews have installed a tunnel system between two steam vaults and new steam lines, Perry said, and new sidewalks and roadway are still going in.
