WASATCH DRIVE AND STUDENT LIFE WAY IMPACTS: Construction continues on the Wasatch Drive roundabout. See the updated impact map below for new route. 

  • Due to rain, the intersection of Wasatch Drive and Mario Capecchi has been open, however, the intersection is now closed for road construction. The Wasatch Express detours straight to the Ambulatory parking garage through North Campus Drive. If you have any questions about the Wasatch Express or if you would like additional information on campus transportation, contact U Commuter Services at 801-581-4189. 
  • Student Life Way is limited one-way traffic at times when heavy construction equipment is being used. Flaggers will help direct traffic during these times. 
  • Please note that left turns into student life will not be allowed at this time and we encourage traffic to come southbound Wasatch Drive to turn right at Student Life Way. 


DAVID GARDNER HALL PARKING LOT: Due to the replacement of high-temp water lines, the parking lot near David Gardner Hall and the Voice & Opera Center is closed. This lot will remain impacted through July 15, 2019.

These stalls will be closed to provide access to the Proton Therapy Clinic.

Huntsman Cancer Institute is preparing for the construction of a Proton Treatment Facility. This facility will be located in a mainly underground concrete facility to be located in the east hillside between the HCI 555 Building and HCH 556 Building. Construction began in February 2019. Please expect partial trail closures to occur during this time.

STAYING SAFE IN WINTER CONDITIONS: It’s important to be extra careful when walking on campus while snow, ice and slippery conditions are present. To stay safe when walking in winter conditions, please take the following precautions:

  • Walk at a slower pace and plan extra time into your commute to do so 
  • Scan ahead to identify and avoid potential slippery surfaces
  • Stay on designated sidewalks 
  • Use handrails 
  • Remove snow and mud from your shoes before entering a building 
  • Wear appropriate footwear (snow boots, hiking boots, etc.) for the winter conditions 

Let us help you stay safe on campus. To report unsafe conditions, please contact snow removal at 801-581-7221.
