Notice body

The intersection of South Donahue Drive at Lem Morrison Drive will be reduced to two lanes May 16 through mid-July to extend underground utilities to the Health Science Sector. Portions of Lem Morrison Drive will also be closed during this time.

“We understand South Donahue experiences a high traffic volume daily, and therefore, we’ve worked extensively with our contractors to develop a plan that will allow the intersection to remain partially open during construction,” said Dan King, associate vice president for Facilities Management. “Our team has worked hard to minimize the impact of this major construction project on the campus community. We appreciate everyone’s patience while we work to bring utilities to the new School of Nursing and the Pharmaceutical Research Building.”

This utilities project will take place in two phases.

Phase I Impact

  • The intersection of South Donahue Drive at Lem Morrison Drive will be reduced from four to two lanes for north-south traffic.

  • Lem Morrison Drive will be closed to vehicle traffic from South Donahue Drive to the entrance of the Auburn University Medical Clinic. The Clinic will remain open and accessible to vehicle traffic during this phase of construction. See map on the Facilities Management Temporary Road and Facilities Closure webpage.

Phase II Impact

  • The intersection of South Donahue Drive at Lem Morrison Drive will continue to have two lanes open for vehicle traffic. However, the two lanes will transition from the west to the east side of the intersection during Phase II.

  • Lem Morrison Drive will be closed from Woodfield Drive to South Donahue Drive. See map on the Facilities Management Temporary Road and Facilities Closure webpage.
