Neighbourhood News and June Events

Busy day across campus may cause delays – Tuesday, June 4

Western officials are urging the campus community to use a bit of caution – and maybe some alternative routes – as a busy Tuesday, June 4, nears.

From 6-10 a.m., University Drive Bridge, along with the intersection of Perth, Middlesex and Lambton Drives, will be closed to motorized vehicle traffic.

The east side of the bridge will be closed west of the entrance to the Medway parking lot. The bridge will remain open for pedestrians and cyclists.

With more than 4,000 people expected to attend an event, the Medway, Talbot, Middlesex and Visual Arts parking lots will be reserved for event participants until 10 a.m.

London Transit buses will be re-routed in the morning.

Starting at 8 a.m., TD Waterhouse Stadium will host the Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB) Elementary Track & Field Meet. Hundreds of local athletes, family members and fans will descend on the south side of campus for the annual event.

Huron Flats and South Valley parking lots will be used for this event, but will remain open to the campus community.

Western Road and Sarnia Road / Philip Aziz Avenue Improvements

Last week, the City held the first of two public information sessions on its plans to improve the traffic flows at the Sarnia and Western Road intersection.
