The Hearst Avenue Complete Streets Project will result in the closure of westbound Hearst Avenue from Euclid Avenue to Le Conte Avenue, beginning Monday, Oct. 2, and continuing through Friday, Oct. 6. Additional construction work is planned through Oct. 20 affecting different sections of westbound Hearst Avenue. During this period, Lab shuttles in the downhill direction will experience delays that may exceed 10 minutes.

Due to the Hearst “Complete Streets” project, the three shuttle stops on Hearst Ave (Northgate, Arch and Cory Hall) may be affected intermittently. Shuttle drivers will not attempt to pick up passengers in unsafe situations. While these stops are affected, signage will direct passengers to the nearest, safest, alternative locations for boarding and exiting shuttles.
Learn how to create a Zimride profile, post a ride, and connect with other employees. With limited parking at the Lab, ridesharing is a great alternative.

The workshops take place at 11 a.m. in Bldg. 90-3122 or 12:30 p.m. in Perseverance Hall. More>
