Spring Break 2024 Hagar Road Closure

March 15, 2024

A section of Hagar Road between Steinhart Way and the East Field House will be closed during spring break from March 27th at 7:00 a.m. until March 28th at 4:00 p.m. to conduct a drilling investigation related to the sinkhole from earlier this year.  

Campus Transit services / METRO

Campus Transit will operate modified Upper Campus routes, and will continue to serve the Village stops in both directions as well as the interior of East Remote. East Field House and Quarry stops will not be served during this closure, nor will East Remote stops on Hagar.

Campus Transit modified routing will also include detours into Cowell Circle in the clockwise direction for picking up and dropping off passengers.

METRO will bypass Hagar completely during the closure, instead using Coolidge in both directions. This will result in the suspension of METRO service at Quarry, East Field House, East Remote and Village stops. METRO will pick up and drop off eastbound passengers at McLaughlin and Hagar, provided it is safe to do so.

The Disability Van Service will continue to serve all areas of campus to the extent feasible.

During Spring Break, campus transit will have a reduced schedule

All parking lots will remain accessible during this closure. The following lots will have limited access:

Additional impacts

The closure of Hagar Road may increase traffic and congestion on other campus roads, particularly Coolidge Drive and Heller Drive. Members of the campus community should anticipate potential delays, and we encourage everyone to be patient and understanding. Please drive safely.
