The following message is from Facilities Services:  

Traffic on College Avenue between Payne and Rowe streets has been completely closed off  today (Wednesday, Sept. 18) and tomorrow (Thursday, Sept. 19) from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. due to unforeseen conditions. The sidewalk closest to UMW also will remain closed during this time. The original detoured route will resume at 1 p.m. on  Friday, Sept. 20. We apologize for any inconvenience.

This is updated information about the College Avenue traffic patterns in the coming weeks. The original detour, which resumes at 1 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20, is as follows:

  • As of 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.
