Motorists who enter and exit The University of Texas at El Paso via University Avenue near Oregon Street should know that a storm drainage improvement project will start at 7 a.m. Monday, July 6, 2015, and it will impact traffic flow for approximately five weeks. A portion of the right westbound lane beyond the traffic control station near the arroyo will be closed initially for some demolition and installation of concrete pipe.
The right-hand, northbound lane of Sun Bowl Drive will be temporarily closed in front of Kelly and Barry halls through the University Avenue roundabout starting Monday morning, July 6, 2015, due to the ongoing demolition of Burges and Barry halls. The lane will reopen after the project is completed in August 2015. Security fencing will separate the closed lane from traffic along Sun Bowl Drive, which will remain open throughout the project.
