Road construction on upper campus

Road work begins May 17th.

Beginning on Monday, May 17th, crews will be repairing storm water systems on Mario Cappechi Drive, just south of the intersection of Mario Cappechi Drive and Wasatch Drive.

the intersection of Mario Cappechi Drive and Wasatch Drive will be closed for roadwork. This intersection will be closed for the duration of the roadwork, expected to last for three weeks.

Mario Cappechi will remain open, with southbound traffic being consolidated into one lane near the site. Both lanes of northbound traffic will remain open.

Wasatch Drive will be closed to through traffic, and as part of this project, intersection safety improvements will take place at the same time. Commuters wishing to access Wasatch Drive or Student Life Way will need to travel northbound on Mario Cappechi to North Campus Drive, before turning left onto Wasatch Drive.

To access Student Life Way, commuters will be able to follow a detour route through the parking lot and roadway north and east of the Eccles Broadcast Center, adjacent to Wasatch Drive. Traffic control cones, signs, and traffic flaggers will be in place to assist commuters through the necessary detours.

The intersection of Wasatch Drive and Student Life Way will be closed. East/west bound pedestrians will need to detour onto the pathway on the north side of Student Life way, where a mixed-use bike/pedestrian route will be in place. Signs will be posted to assist pedestrians as they travel along this detour. With the closure of the crosswalk on Student Life Way at Wasatch Drive, pedestrians wishing to access buildings/routes on the south side of Student Life Way must travel to the designated crosswalk just east of Lassonde Studios.

This roadwork has been planned so as to best minimize the impact on students, faculty, staff and visitors. As always, we appreciate your patience. Please contact Wes Mangum with Facilities ( with questions or concerns.

For the duration of this construction project, the Wasatch Express Route will detour directly to the Ambulatory Garage (Lot 45) through North Campus Drive.
