Multiple construction projects will impacts vehicles and pedestrians in and around the medical center area. The June 11 closure of the SR-315 on ramp at 12thAvenue, as well as Cannon Drive, south of Herrick Drive, will limit vehicular traffic and detour shuttle routes. Commuters should plan ahead and expect delays. In addition, fencing will be installed along Neil Avenue early June to shift pedestrian traffic to the east. These efforts support vehicular access at Neil Avenue and Herrick Drive while the Cannon Drive project construction continues.
