Campus Planning

Oliver Street Reconfiguration
Summer, 2008

Back to Recent Projects

With the help of a grant from the State of Michigan, the university reconfigured Oliver Street, the campus road that runs between Stadium and Oakland Drives.

The project took place in three stages over the summer of 2008 and was completed in August, in time for the start of fall semester.  The office "road opening' was Friday, August 29, 2008.

The total scope of the project included a new roadway and sidewalks, bicycle paths, and reconstructed parking lots.

Also included in the project was a stormwater management plan to prevent building and parking lot run-off from entering the Arcadia Creek watershed.
