Re: Kirby Drive/Library Dr. Closure Update
North End of Kirby Dr and all Library Dr
Monday, August 3 – Thursday, August 6, 2009
Due to equipment failure and the weekend weather, Library Drive and the
north end of Kirby Drive from above the LSBE Turn-Around to St. Marie
Street closure has been extended through this Thursday, August 6. The
entrances to Lot D, Lot E and the Library Lot remain closed during this
time. Lot E and Lot G are open. Please access Lot E through Lot G.
It is also recommended not to use the main Library Entrance during this
time. Please access the Library via the Engineering Building Entrance
0off University Dr. This road closure is needed for crews to repair the
roadway and is weather dependent.
