DPT has been informed about a number of summer construction projects that may impact the Ole Miss communities' ability to move about campus.  Projects include: utility work along Chucky Mullins and Fraternity Drive that will close both roads at some point, the start of the new Residential Parking Structure on the north side of campus, and even the closure of Gertrude Ford Blvd. due to work on the University Avenue bridge.  Many other projects around campus are scheduled to start this summer while students are mostly absent.  Our department has created a map summarizing the projects that we've been informed about and we feel it is important to share this information with the community.   Click HERE to download the PDF version of the construction on campus this summer.
