Aggie Bull-evard to Add Signal Lights, Bike Lane
The Herald Journal Monday, May. 13, 2019
Aggie Bull-evard, the section of 700 North that passes through the Utah State campus, has been closed multiple times in the past for road construction, most typically in the summer. This year, big changes are expected as construction begins once again. Access to USU from 700 North is temporarily closed until Aug. 23. The closure is to help facilitate road, sidewalk and crosswalk improvements from 800 East to 900 East between the Aggie Recreation Center and the Education Building. “The signal light crosswalks will be used to direct pedestrians to the crosswalks at 800 North and 900 North,” said Kelly Christoffersen from USU Facilities planning, design and construction. Christoffersen said that they will be adding a new center island with a rain garden and artwork to help keep individuals from jaywalking. “We want to make it easier for the buses, and we will be adding a bike lane as well,” Christoffersen said. ... Entrance into USU from 1200 East to 900 East will still be open, and an alternative route to the Taggart Student Center, Welcome Center and University Inn parking lot will be made available.
