From approximately 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., there will be NO crossing on W. 16th Ave. Residents south of W. 16th Ave. can exit via Wesbrook Mall to SW. Marine Dr. but will not be able to return until after 11 a.m. at the earliest. Individuals returning to campus around 11 a.m. via University Blvd. may be redirected to cross over W. 16th Ave. This would be faster than waiting for W. 16th Ave. to fully open again for southbound and westbound traffic.
