University Avenue between Harvard Street and Princeton Street will be closed to traffic, both directions, starting Sunday, April 28th, due to the start of the City of Grand Forks project to reconstruct University Ave. Intersections of Princeton/University and Harvard/University will remain open to traffic. Detour signage will be posted to direct traffic north of 6th Ave. N in order to pass around construction zone. Construction work on University Ave. is starting early in 2019 in preparation to complete pavement reconstruction prior to the 2019 Fall Semester. During the closure, Oxford St. will be opened to two-way traffic up to 5th Ave. N in order to access the parking lot on Oxford St., south of Bek Hall.
Contractors have begun to install construction safety fence along University Ave. in preparation for the City of Grand Forks University Ave. reconstruction project this summer.
