Weather allowing, on Thursday, August 3 beginning mid-morning and anticipated to last until late afternoon, the Kipke Drive-East Stadium Boulevard intersection will be closed to all vehicular traffic for the final course of asphalt paving. This paving can only take place during generally dry weather conditions so rain may delay the work and associated road closures. Please check the electronic message boards located at East Keech Avenue/Kipke Drive and South Industrial Highway/East Stadium Boulevard for updates.
During the closure, local access only to Kipke Drive and adjacent U-M parking lots and buildings will be maintained from the north via Greene Street and East Keech Avenue. Drivers on Kipke Drive will not be able to exit to or enter from East Stadium Boulevard and South Industrial Highway during this closure, although access to the U-M Golf Course driveway will be maintained from the east. U-M bus routes are not anticipated to be affected.
