Closure to allow for overhead beam erection as North Split work continues


Starting tomorrow, College Avenue will experience nightly closures through January 22, weather permitting, for overhead beam erection. College Avenue will close Thursday evening from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. and Friday evening from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

During this closure, northbound and southbound traffic will be detoured to Central Avenue. There will be no impact on the Monon Loop during the Thursday night closure of College Avenue. On Friday between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., there will be flaggers on site to implement periodic, 20-minute bike/pedestrian stoppages while beams are set above College Avenue.
