On Monday, May 3, the University will take the next step toward the development of a new Recreation and Wellness Center on campus. 

Protective fencing will be installed around the O’Hara Garage and LRDC site to begin building removals, with demolition continuing throughout the summer.

The protective fencing will temporarily close the bike lane and sidewalk on the westbound side of the street until the new Recreation and Wellness Center is complete. 

Pedestrian traffic will be redirected across the street, and motorists travelling toward DeSoto Street on O’Hara Street will share the lane with bicyclists. Minimal traffic disruption is expected. 

Current permit holders at O’Hara Garage have been notified and provided with alternate parking and transportation options.
