WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI)—Students may be leaving for the summer but something else is preparing to move in. As classes and graduation wrap up Purdue’s summer construction is set begin.

Construction for the new STEM Teaching Lab Building will continue this summer. This building will provide more than 100,000 square feet of student focused laboratory space.

The $64 million project doesn’t stand alone in Purdue’s plan to improve its campus. There’s more heightened construction that motorist and pedestrians should be aware of.

Lane restrictions and changing traffic patterns will begin for U.S. 231 from Airport Road to South River Road for a month.

Parking alongside South University Street will be unavailable until mid-August due to construction in that area along side Clinic Drive. 

Parking Garages like University Street Parking Garage will be closed in phases throughout the summer for maintenance work.

Pedestrians should also be aware of the sidewalk south of Jischke Hall of Biomedical Engineering. The sidewalk will be closed through August as that building is being renovated.
