McConnell Drive will be closed to two-way vehicle traffic starting July 8 as Arizona Department of Transportation crews begin work on the I-17 bridge.
The street, which serves as the main entrance to NAU’s south campus, will be closed for the remainder of the summer; ADOT plans to open the street to traffic the Monday before residence hall move-in. McConnell Drive on NAU campus will be open, but there will be no access to Beulah Boulevard from campus. Those who travel from that area of town should take University Drive.
Pedestrian travel will be accommodated during the closure; pedestrians should expect limited delays because of construction activities and flaggers will control pedestrian movements.
NAIPTA will reroute the Route 10 bus, which will not be stopping at stops 6, 15, 7 and 14 (Campus Heights and SBS). Route 10 will have a temporary stop at the University and Knoles intersection and will take University Drive out to Milton. NAU buses will maintain their regular stops at these locations.
