Summary: Division of Facilities Management
For Immediate Release
As part of the METRO construction, the intersection of Wheeler Avenue and Calhoun Road
will be partially closed (see attached exhibit) starting Saturday, July 30th
intersection will be completely closed for southbound Calhoun Road and westbound
Wheeler Avenue. Eastbound traffic on Wheeler Avenue will be forced to right south onto
M.L. King Boulevard. Northbound traffic on M.L. King will be forced to turn left onto
Wheeler Avenue. This condition will last until the week before school starts.
While inconvenient, the closure is needed to allow the work in the intersection to be completed
and full use of Wheeler Avenue restored before classes begin. Please plan your trips
Also at this time, any traffic turning onto "Old" Wheeler Avenue from Entrance 4, Moody Towers,
and Entrance 5 will be diverted to the new pavement at Entrance 6. From there vehicles can
continue traveling westward to Cullen Boulevard or turn east toward M.L. King Boulevard. Any
vehicles needing to access parking lots 7A or 7B will be allowed to use the existing Wheeler to
do so. This condition will last for approximately a week.
