Construction activity on the college’s new 900-foot pedestrian bridge will prompt the closure of Temple Avenue for 12 hours from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. in both directions from Grand Avenue to Bonita Avenue over the course of two consecutive weekends.

Work on the project includes setting the scaffolding structure over Temple Avenue to allow the start of the structural system. The scaffold structure will remain in place for approximately one year.

The first weekend closure is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 13 through Sunday, Aug. 15. The second weekend closure is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 20 through Sunday, Aug. 22.

The north side of campus will be open to bypass this street closure using Mountaineer Road to Edinger Way to Bonita Avenue.
