Building B-1430 Parking Lot Expansion
Nov. 16-28
Building B-1430 Parking Lot Expansion
Work is set to begin on the B-1430 parking expansion on Nov. 16 -28.

During this work, thru traffic will be halted on the road between the Exchange and building 1430, (also known as "no name road") This affects motorist and pedestrians traversing between Veterans Drive and Ditto Ave. During this road work and until Porter Street is re-opened, thru traffic will be detoured to Sultan Drive.

Pedestrians coming from the Ditto side should follow Sultan Drive around to Veterans, use the crosswalk nearest Veterans Drive to cross over the "no name road" and cut across the grass to enter the Exchange parking lot.

Two way traffic entering the Exchange and Burger King Drive-thru will continue from Veterans Drive.

Delivery vehicles to the Exchange will follow the detour to Sultan Drive and enter "no name road" from Ditto Ave.

Use caution when traveling along detoured areas and mindful of pedestrian traffic where it is not normally encountered.
