Starting on Wednesday, June 4, University Place will be closed to through traffic from College Road to Alexander Street due to construction of the Princeton University Arts and Transit Project. This closure is expected to remain in place until mid-July. Access for vehicles travelling to the Wawa customer parking lot will be maintained via the roundabout on Alexander Street.
A detour for vehicular traffic will be in place for the duration of the closure. A temporary traffic signal at the intersection of College Road and Alexander Street will be operational while the detour is in place.
Local access to and from the metered diagonal parking spaces along University Place south of College Road, adjacent to the McCarter Theatre Center, will be maintained via the College Road-University Place intersection.
Additionally, pedestrian and bike paths in the area will be shifted during this construction phase. Please follow signage that will be posted when walking, biking or driving through the area.
Updated maps showing vehicular, pedestrian, and bike detours are available on the Arts and Transit Project website.
