Construction on Stadium Drive has been delayed indefinitely due to inclement weather conditions.
Stadium Drive has been closed to through traffic since Dec. 18 for the Central Campus Athletics Project, which will build a new soccer and lacrosse stadium, an indoor practice facility and two adjacent outdoor practice fields.
The construction was scheduled to be finished by the second week of February, while the work between Carmichael and Teague Residence Halls was to conclude the third week of March. But due to inclement weather conditions, construction has been delayed.
Mike Bunting, the associate athletic director for Facility Planning and Management, said Stadium Drive's closure is so CCAP facilities can connect to campus chilled water and steam. The closure should not be a major impediment to pedestrians, he said.
“It’s only closed to through traffic,” Bunting said. “You can still access all of Stadium Drive.”
