Is there a map of campus sidewalk closures?
Date: August 2022
Is there a map of campus sidewalk closures? I walk to campus a lot of the time, and this summer my routes have been closed at seemingly random times. I have been unable to predict these closures, so I’ve had to backtrack and find different routes. Am I missing something?

Dear Route Finder Amid Construction,
Thanks so much for your question. I understand how frustrating this can be and have to sometimes remind myself that the end goal of the construction projects is to ultimately help improve our campus. I had to do some digging and found that “Construction Impacts” is a function of our colleagues in Facilities and Campus Services (FCS). So, I reached out to this office to gather some information that might help it so that you can better plan your walking route. Here is what I found:
- CUInfo hosts the Special Conditions and Campus Alerts page.
- To subscribe to the electronic mailing list that distributes notification of road closures, construction project impacts, or events on campus, send an email message to SpecialConditions-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org. The body of the message should read “join” (without the quotes).
- A complete listing of the construction projects around campus is found on the FCS website.
- More information about some of the summer projects is found on the FCS website.
- If you are looking for parking updates, you can go to the parking page on the FCS website.
I think you are looking for a campus map that has the construction projects noted. As a result, I shared that suggestion with our friends at Facilities and Campus Services and learned that there is indeed a map available for viewing online; however, this map does not address all emergency or limited time projects, partial closures, etc. That information is communicated through the special conditions alert notification page and mail list.
I hope this response provides you with more information to help you be informed about the best campus route as you get from place to place during construction.
