With several construction projects in the works at UNT,  road work has been a catalyst for heavy vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Certain streets, sides of buildings and parking lots are blocked due to projects, according to the UNT Construction Report.

Residence halls

Residence hall and Welcome Center: The new UNT Welcome Center and residence hall, “Mean” Joe Greene Hall, is expected to be completed by late February 2019. Until then, Parking Lot 1 and the grounds east of Kerr Hall will be impacted by construction.

Maple Hall: Located in the northeast corner of Eagle Drive and Avenue C, a portion of Maple Hall will be under construction. The southwest corner of the dining hall area will be under construction due to the university adding a generator on pad for the fire pump. The generator is a secondary source for the fire pump in the case of an emergency or outage, according to Consulting-Specifying Engineer.

Building and Centers

College of Visual Arts and Design: The CVAD building, west of Curry Hall and the Physics building, will be under construction for the remainder of the year. The project should be completed by Jan. 1. One portion of the new CVAD building is completed but three more sides are to be added over time. Pedestrians and vehicular traffic will be blocked for the time being.

Gateway Center: The Gateway Center is under construction due to the building of a new university entrance.

North campus: At the intersection of Avenue C and South Hickory to Mulberry streets, the roads and sidewalks will be closed to all forms of traffic until late December.

Wooten Hall: The south side of Wooten Hall will be closed to pedestrian traffic until the end of November. Located in Union Circle, the Wooten Hall sidewalks will be impacted due to a fire system installment in the building.

Parking lots

Power plant: The power plant parking lot located west of the power plant on Sycamore street is currently blocked. There will be no parking allowed until Oct. 30, when the new drainage system is installed for the power plant.

Curry Hall: Located on Avenue A, the west side of Curry Hall will be blocked until mid-October. Curry’s parking lot is currently being renovated due to the repour and restriping of the concrete parking area. No one will be able to park or walk along the sidewalk adjacent to the building.

This Article was update to reflect the correct location of construction happening near the intersection of Ave. C and Hickory Street.

    I’m confused…you mention construction around the Gateway Center, but specify that it’s going to take place in the area of Avenue C and Hickory, which is on the opposite side of campus. Can you please clarify which area will be closed to traffic?
