Silver City, NM – In order to continue the progress being made on the campus underground utilities and College Avenue beautification project, College Avenue will be closed to all traffic just west of the Cooper Street intersection and just east of the D Street intersection. The closure begins Monday, June 11, and will remain in effect through the duration of the project.

Traffic will be rerouted on 8th Street via Cooper Street (southbound) and Bayard Street (northbound) and via D Street, however the public should avoid the area while the project is underway.

Access to the Student Memorial Building/Brancheau PE Complex/Light Hall/Castorena Hall/Felipe de Ortego y Gasca Cultural Center parking lot will be available through the west entrance, as the east entrance will remain closed until the project’s completion as well. The normally one-way exit will function as a two-way entrance and exit, so courtesy and caution should be exercised.

During this road closure, the sidewalk is also closed to pedestrian traffic.

It is recommended that commuters travel to campus via 12th and 7th streets or use other alternate routes while the College Avenue beautification project is underway.

Regular working hours for this project are Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. – 5 p.m., although crews may work longer hours or on weekends if needed. Work dates and times are weather permitting and subject to change without notice.
