Underground Utilities Project Begins May 14: Impacts to Traffic and Parking
From the Interim Vice President for Finance and Management
On Monday, May 14, Buffalo State will begin a rehabilitation of underground utilities in and around the Rockwell Quadrangle. The project will replace outdated utilities in the eastern area of the campus. Virtually all the ground surrounding and surrounded by the five original campus buildings—Ketchum, Bacon, and Rockwell halls; the Donald Savage Building; and Campus House—will be affected.
Listed below are three immediate impacts of the utilities project on campus traffic and parking. Please continue to watch the Daily Bulletin for updates.
Lane Closure on Iroquois Drive: Throughout the week of May 14, and intermittently throughout the construction period, portions of Iroquois Drive will be used for equipment staging, restricting traffic to one lane. Traffic control will be provided by flagmen positioned between Lot T and Lot X. Please drive with extra caution in this area.
Temporary Closure of Lot Y: Lot Y will close Sunday, May 13, to accommodate utility improvements. It is scheduled to reopen during the week of May 21.
Relocation of Lot W Entrance: Lot W will close on Monday, May 14. It is scheduled to reopen at 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 15, with its entrance temporarily relocated to the northwest area of the lot. The regular entrance will be barricaded, and signage will be relocated to the new temporary entry point.

Your patience and understanding are appreciated as the project progresses.
