New detours on San Martin Drive begin today

A project to improve San Martin Drive along the Homewood campus completes its first phase on Sept. 12, giving drivers and bikers access to a safer trip along a section of the roadway that has been closed for seven months. New sidewalks, curbs, and lighting will be in place, as will a new pedestrian-only bridge between Olin Hall and the San Martin Center.

On the same day, two other road segments will shut down or be restricted, and drivers will need to use new detours.

As of Sept. 12: The leg of San Martin Drive from the South Garage past the San Martin Garage upper entrance to the West Gate at Bowman Drive will reopen. The entire length of Bowman will also be open, including the West Gate. Most of Wyman Park Drive between San Martin and Remington Avenue will close (though the Wyman parking lots, Homewood Early Learning Center, and Carnegie Way will still be accessible). San Martin Drive will be closed from University Parkway to the Muller Parking Deck.

More information and a map of the closures is online.
