In an effort to make our cycling employees safer, the Lab has installed its first official bike lane, as well as “sharrows” — road signage that depicts a bicycle with arrows pointing forward — that alerts motorists of locations where bicycles may share the roadway. These changes are part of an effort to improve road safety and encourage alternative commute modes. More>
The BLAZES program brings fifth graders to the Lab to learn about science. Safety is at the forefront of these visits. Brightly colored markers at the entrances of Building 7 alert drivers that children are present. When you see these markers, drivers should slow down in that area. More>

As a friendly reminder employees should obey the rules of the road on and off-site. Here is a link to a great resource that provides you with tips on what you can do as a driver and a pedestrian.
The work is scheduled to begin in early October. Parking and pedestrian access around Building 5, 16, and 52 will continue to be restricted. There will also be an increase in truck traffic, and staging at the former Bevatron site will continue. Contact Bob Cronin (x2849) or Ted Mankowski (x2012) for more information.
The temporary lane closure is required to accommodate the installation of curbing on Chu and Perlmutter Roads. Drivers and pedestrians are requested to use caution when traversing these areas.
Repair to a telephone manhole will require one-lane, two-way traffic controlled by a flagger as well as a pedestrian detour on Alvarez Road, adjacent to the Bevatron/B1 parking lot.
While the repaving on Chu Road is complete, the pedestrian crosswalks, directional and stop signage will not be painted until the weekend of Sept. 26 and 27. In the interim, temporary markings will indicate crosswalks, stops, and temporary lane dividers. Drivers and cyclists should use caution in this area during this time.
The road will be closed from Blackberry Gate to just beyond Perlmutter Road. After noon on Friday, use Strawberry Gate for 24/7 access. Pedestrians and bicycles (on foot only) can come through Blackberry Gate, and access to Building 88 will remain open. Shuttle buses will be rerouted, and cars in Building 65 lot must be moved by 2 p.m. on Friday. More>
Tree removal in front of Building 46 will require the closure of one lane on McMillan Road on Sept. 12. Paving in that same area, as well as on Lawrence Road near Building 31 will take place on Sept. 14 and 15. Flaggers will control two-way traffic. Drivers and pedestrians should use caution in these areas.
