The Business Loop, Campus Center Drive, is undergoing a renovation. The first phase is a redesign of the traffic flow through the area which begins on Tuesday, May 31, 2016. The area noted below, east of the new Central Parking Garage, will be closed permanently beginning May 31, 2016.

The east entrance to the ramp will be closed, the parking garage remains open with full access from the west end near the school of business. When complete, the roadway will be redesigned to include two roundabouts.

There is also a high temperature water infrastructure upgrade moving through the area that will temporarily close the steps to the northwest of the Huntsman Center. Those stairs will reopen for the start of school this fall.

Pedestrians coming to campus from TRAX South Campus stop will be routed to the east or west to avoid the closed area. An ADA accessible route will be marked, though it may be easier for individuals in wheelchairs to access the center of campus by exiting TRAX at the Fort Douglas stop and following the accessible route from the stop, along the south side of the Eccles Student Life Center and into the heart of campus.

Changes to the orange campus shuttle route will also be in place due to the construction in this area. It will run between the Union and Heritage, Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.
