As the University of Georgia’s fall semester draws to a close, campus construction ramps up: UGA says the sidewalk on the west side of Lumpkin Street will be closed south of Baxter Street to Amos Hall, not reopening until the first week in January. Sidewalks on the north side of Baxter will also close to allow for work on the latest phase of the Terry College of Business Learning Community.
From the University of Georgia Master Calendar…
Pedestrian Safety Improvements are part of the construction of Terry College of Business Learning Community Phase III. The sidewalk on the west side of Lumpkin St. will be closed from the sidewalk access to Amos Hall, south to Baxter St. Sidewalk will reopen Jan. 5. Right-turn lane turning onto Baxter St. off S. Lumpkin St. will be closed starting Dec. 5 until Jan. 5. The sidewalk on the north side of Baxter St. will remain closed from S. Lumpkin St to S. Hull St until March, 2019.
The sidewalk on the east side of S. Hull St. will be remain closed until March 2019 from Baxter St. up to the Amos Hall service drive. Correll Hall, Amos Hall, Moore-Rooker Hall and Benson Hall will all still be accessible for pedestrians from both the S. Lumpkin St. and S. Hull St. sides. Lanes for vehicular traffic on both S. Baxter St. and on S. Hull St. will not be impacted by this work. Caution is to be taken when crossing the intersection of Baxter St. and South Hull St. as it is expected that construction vehicular traffic will be entering the construction site by turning westbound onto South Baxter St. off of S.
