Summary of Disruption: The Electrical Infrastructure Upgrade Project contractor will trench a section of University Drive and green space near the Kellogg Rose Garden starting on Tuesday, Sept. 29. The first part of trenching will occur on University Drive weekdays from approximately 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and is expected to be completed by Tuesday, Oct. 6. One lane of University Drive will remain open and flagmen will direct drivers around the trenching site. Steel plates will be placed over the trench at the end of the work day.
