UPDATE: Section of Founders Drive closed on October 18

Emergency notification

To accommodate the installation of a tower crane for construction of the university’s new building at the north Oshawa location, Founders Drive between the crosswalk north of the UL Building and the crosswalk at Founders Gate will be closed on Friday, October 18. Crews will be pouring concrete for the crane’s foundation all day.

Traffic impact:

  • Traffic access along Founders Drive will be limited or restricted at times throughout the day. Delays are likely. Obey the direction of traffic control personnel.
  • Motorists entering campus at Founders Gate and requiring access to Avenue of Champions should consider using the Conlin Road entrance to campus as an alternative.
  • All gates to the Founders Lot 2 parking lot as well as pay-and-display parking spaces will remain accessible as normal, but please be cautious when driving in these areas due to the presence of cement trucks and construction equipment.

Pedestrian impact:

  • Pedestrians should cross Founders Drive only at designated locations. Follow posted signage and the direction of traffic control personnel.
  • Be aware of the presence of large vehicles in the area.
  • Do not use the walkway corridor adjacent to the west side of the construction site.

Your patience and co-operation is appreciated.
