Construction on UF campus along Museum Road shutters bus routes and commutes across the university.

UF’s Office of Business Affairs announced in an email that a section of Museum Road — from McCarty Drive and Center Drive to Newell Drive — will officially reopen Monday.

The stretch was closed for nearly ten months as a part of UF’s Campus Master Plan, which includes renovating campus roads for increased accessibility and sustainability. 

Following the Nov. 14 opening, additional closures will begin, including Museum Road, East of Gale Lemerand Drive to West of Reitz Union Drive; Newell Drive, from the Dickinson Service Drive to the Harrell Service Drive; and Museum Road, East of Jennings Hall to Beaty Towers. 

These closures are anticipated to last until January 2023, the email said. Museum Road west of Gale Lemerand Drive will continue to be closed until May 2023.
