News Brief 11/22/2013

Construction starts on safety building

As of Wednesday, drivers have experienced traffic congestion through the W-10 lot on Dixon Drive and Harrison Boulevard. The change is part of a master plan that includes construction of the new Weber State University Public Safety Building on the northwest corner of campus, which will take approximately seven months.

Following graduation, on Dec. 14, the W-10 lot will close and eventually be replaced with a new ‘W’ lot. Modifications are also being made to the timing of the traffic lights on Harrison to enhance traffic flow for southbound drivers. Drivers’ patience during the changes and construction is appreciated.
