Traffic signals at the intersection of Kellogg Drive and Red Gum Lane will be taken out of service and replaced with stop signs on Monday, July 17.
The temporary use of stop signs to control the intersection near the Student Services Building construction site is scheduled to last through Sept. 8.
The removal of the traffic signals will clear space for the construction of the realigned portion of Kellogg Drive. New traffic signals will replace the older models that were removed. The Facilities Design and Construction department will activate the realigned road in late August or early September.
To help minimize congestion, university traffic control officers will help direct vehicle flow during peak commute times.
Orientation sessions for freshmen and transfer students are expected to bring an influx of summer traffic, with each freshman session likely to consist of about 450 students and 200 parents coming to campus for the one- and two-day events.
Remaining orientation sessions for freshmen are scheduled July 19-20, July 26-27, Aug. 2-3, Aug. 16-17 and Aug. 23-24. Transfer student orientation sessions are slated for July 17-18, July 24-25, Aug. 1, Aug. 7, Aug. 10, Aug. 15, Aug. 22 and Aug. 29. Check-in time for orientation is 7 a.m.
Signage along Kellogg Drive also will be installed to caution drivers about the temporary stop signs at the intersection.
