Elmore Road closure, Aug. 12-Sept. 2

As part of the construction of UAA’s new sports arena—the Alaska Airlines Center—GMC Contracting Inc. will be closing Elmore Road to through traffic between University Lake Drive and Sharon Gagnon Lane beginning Aug. 12. The closure will last approximately until Sept. 2 as crews build a new roundabout intersection and complete underground utility work.

This road closure will not allow for vehicular or pedestrian traffic. Please follow the construction DETOUR signs for alternative routes and plan on giving yourself extra travel time. At right is a map of the closure location.

Piper Street, Dale Street, Lake Otis Parkway and Providence Drive will remain open and are recommended alternative routes to and from campus, as well as UAA’s residential community.

You can also keep up to date on all of UAA’s construction projects and their impacts on traffic flow, as well as parking availability on UAA’s construction blog at http://uaaconstruction.blogspot.com. Please share this road closure information with other members of the UAA community.
