    January 8th Weather Update

    January 8th, 2017

    January 8, 2017 – 12:22 pm

     

    Dear returning UO students and families:

    The University of Oregon is expected to be following normal operations on Monday, Jan. 9.  We continue to monitor the evolving weather situation and will post any campus operational changes to the UO Alerts Blog.

    The region has experienced snow, ice, and extreme cold in recent days, and weather forecasts show warming temperatures that are expected to normalize conditions across the Eugene campus and the city.

    For many, travel to UO remains difficult and students and families should consult road and weather information and use extreme caution, both traveling to campus and while moving back into residences. If you find yourself unable to make it to campus safely, you should use your best judgment and contact your instructors to seek special accommodations relating to your Monday class schedule.

    UO Campus Planning and Facilities Management crews have been working overtime to make safe designated walking paths around campus, but some areas may remain challenging early Monday.

    Please use caution and plan for extra travel time.

    Stay safe, Ducks!

    Road closures continue post-Trials

    July 11th, 2016

    University of Oregon employees and visitors beware: road closures around Hayward Field and the east side of campus remain in effect through July 22, as the massive structures erected for the Olympic Track and Field Trials and fan festival are dismantled and trucked away.

    Maps of day-by-day road and parking closures are still available: http://arcg.is/1Ry8ghN

    15th Avenue from Agate Street to University Street, and Agate Street south from 13th Avenue to 18th Avenue are closed through July 17. Agate Street going north only is open between 15th and 13th avenues.

    NO cars or bikes should attempt to drive through the closed areas, which are marked by signs, fences and security barricades. Trucks and construction equipment are constantly in motion disassembling Trials infrastructure, loading and hauling it away. The area is extremely dangerous as the heavy equipment and material moves around, and so remains closed. Deliveries, commercial traffic, and regular campus travel all must use alternate routes and respect the road closures.
