The planned construction project at the University Parkway exit that eliminates left turns northbound (see previous story) has been postponed. The North Carolina Department of Transportation has approved the safety plan and anticipates construction will begin until this summer. As dates become firm, additional updates will be provided.
When construction begins, drivers who need to leave campus and head north on University Parkway are encouraged to use the Polo Road exit. By travelling through the light onto Long Drive, a safe left turn can be made at the intersection with University Parkway. Drivers who use the University Parkway gate will make the right turn, head south on University Parkway and then make a legal U-turn to head north.
