University Avenue Intersection The contractor has opened two lanes leaving UPEI at the intersection of UPEI and University Avenue rather than having traffic control flaggers between 4:00-5:00 pm. Beach Volleyball Court The beach volleyball court on campus will be closed as of August 12, 2010. This closure is necessary for the construction of the new Nursing/FNS building. We are currently working on an alternate location for the court. If you have any question or concerns please contact Jackie MacPhail at 6034 or jmacphail@upei.ca ROAD CLOSURE REMINDER Belvedere Avenue from University Avenue to Mt. Edward Road will be closed for a two-week period, August 2-15. There will be no access on Belvedere Avenue to the campus during this period. This closure is necessary due to the heavy equipment being brought in to complete the finishes for the roundabout. There will be one-way access to the Farmer's Market property on Wednesdays and Saturdays during the period they are open. Although this is not a University project, we will do our best to answer questions you may have. Contact Jackie MacPhail at 6034 or jmacphail@upei.ca

Due to the delay leaving campus in the afternoons, the Contractor, Island Coastal, will have a flag person as a traffic controller at the University Avenue/UPEI intersection from 4:00-5:00 pm weekdays. This will remain in place until the Belvedere Avenue entrance opens again. This should improve traffic flow in this area during the busiest period.
