BYU is continuing the Campus Drive redesign project this summer. At the conclusion of BYU Women's Conference (April 28-29), the university will be improving the intersection at Bulldog Boulevard and Campus Drive (1230 North and 450 East).
In a continuing effort to make campus safe for foot, bike and car traffic, the focus of this phase will be moving the intersection slightly to the east, creating a median on West Campus Drive, reconfiguring turning lanes and improving access to the drop-off/pick-up location north of the Jesse Knight Building.
During the construction, traffic will continue to flow through the intersection and at least one lane in each direction will remain open. The work is expected to be done prior to the university's graduation exercises this August.
The work being done this summer will focus on the area between the Hinckley Visitors Center and the Abraham Smoot Building (ASB), stretching north to the Marriott Center.
Campus Drive Redesign Outcomes:
- Move intersection of Bulldog Boulevard and West Campus Drive (1230 North and 450 East) to the east.
- Replace designated turning lanes at this intersection with regular right-hand turning lanes.
- Add a tree-lined median on West Campus Drive, between the Marriott Center and the Gordon B. Hinckely Alumni and Visitors Center.
- Reconfigure entrances and exits of the parking lot north of the Jesse Knight Building giving easier access to the drop-off/pick-up spot.
- Add a pedestrian walkway across the Jesse Knight parking lot between the Smoot Administration Building (ASB) and the Hinckley Center.
Due to these changes some parking spots will be removed. However, over the three phases of this redesign the overall amount of parking spots has increased.
