Road Closures and Detours beginning May 9th

In order to maintain University operations, and support future growth of the Storrs campus in line with the University Master Plan, it is necessary to repair and upgrade the numerous utilities that are located underneath and adjacent to North Eagleville Road, and improve the overall safety and appearance of the corridor.

Please note that North Eagleville Road from Discovery Dr./ Hillside Rd. will be open only to local eastbound (from Hillside toward Glenbrook/ 195) traffic starting May 9th and continuing into the fall semester.  Access from 195 onto North Eagleville will not be available, detour signage will direct all campus traffic to Bolton Road (south campus) or Discovery Drive off of Route 44.  Right turns from Glenbrook onto North Eagleville and turns onto 195 (North and South) will be permitted.

Access to all adjacent buildings and properties will be maintained.
Some delays should be anticipated while the campus community and visitors get accustomed to the new traffic patterns.  We appreciate your understanding while we work to ensure the University facilities continue to meet our changing needs. As updates are received we will post them here.
