College Avenue Traffic Patterns During Campus Center Utility Work

The following message is from the Office of Student Affairs:

September 11, 2013

TO:  All UMW Faculty, Staff, and Students

SUBJECT:   College Avenue traffic patterns during Campus Center utility work

The following is provided to maintain clear communication regarding the traffic pattern and impact of construction on College Avenue.

Please be aware that traffic patterns on College Avenue will be altered in the upcoming weeks to connect utilities (water, sewer, and natural gas) to the site of the new campus center.  The specific impacts are as follows:

  • Beginning on September 16, and continuing until the work is completed on October 11, “No Parking” will be in effect along both sides of College Avenue from Rowe Street to Payne Street.
  • Southbound traffic toward William Street will also be  detoured at Rowe Street to Augustine Avenue and back to College Avenue at Payne Street.
  • Northbound traffic toward Route 1 will remain on  College Avenue. The intersection of Parcell Street and College Avenue will  be closed for the duration of the in-street work, with resident access  from Augustine Avenue.
  • After the utility work is completed on October 11,  traffic will resume its customary pattern. “No Parking” will  continue on the UMW side of College Avenue along the construction site until July 2015. Parking on the other side of College Avenue will  experience occasional limitation.

A map illustrating the temporary traffic pattern is attached.

The University appreciates your understanding during this period of inconvenience.
