Delivery of Modular Classrooms & Offices Expected to Impact Campus Traffic

Modular units that will be used as classrooms and offices while Building 3 undergoes a seismic upgrade will be delivered to campus May 15 and 16. The campus community should prepare for additional vehicular traffic and congestion.

The delivery will be in two phases:

Phase 1 — Monday, May 15, 5-7:30 a.m. & 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The modular units will be transferred on extra-wide trailers from Perris, Calif., to the overflow parking Lot 2 near Innovation Village off Valley Boulevard. During this time, busier than normal traffic is anticipated along Temple Avenue, between the 57 Freeway and Valley Boulevard. Expect delays and allow extra time for commuting to and from campus, according to Facilities Planning, Design & Construction. Deliveries are staggered so traffic will not be impacted continuously throughout the day.

Phase 2 — Monday, May 15 & Tuesday, May 16, throughout the day.

The modular units will be transferred on trailers from parking Lot 2 to the construction site at the Music Bowl located west of Drama/Theatre Building 25 and south of Music Building 24. While there are no road closures, this path-of-travel will cause traffic delays throughout the day at:

  • Temple Avenue between Valley Boulevard and University Drive 
  • University Drive between Temple Avenue and Eucalyptus Lane 
  • Eucalyptus Lane between University Drive and the Bronco Student Center (Building 35) 

During the moving process, all efforts will be made to avoid the peak morning commute times between 7:30-9:30 a.m.

The university is installing six modular buildings to provide supplemental classroom and office space in preparation for Science Building 3's seismic upgrade and renovation project this summer. These new spaces will help offset the loss of space during construction and serve the needs of faculty, staff and students. Construction of this “modular village” is expected to be completed by Aug. 12.
