Research Drive Paving Project - June-August 2020

June 1, 2020

In conjunction with the new Engineering Building project, Research Drive from Telecom Drive to the rear entry of the Duke Clinic building will be repaved this summer.  The road will only be open for emergency and essential access during this time and a flagger will be on duty to direct traffic as only one lane will be available for traffic.  Bus service will run on Research Drive but will stop short of the circle at the read of Duke Clinic.  Due to weather delays this project will likely run to the end of August.  Telecom Drive is now open for access though there may be occasional delays.
