Roell Drive Bridge closed second week in July

June 24, 2008

KALAMAZOO--The Roell Drive Bridge over Howard Street on the campus of Western Michigan University will be closed to all traffic July 5-13 for maintenance. The bridge connects Lawson Arena and Gable Natatorium to the WMU West Campus at Miller Auditorium.

During bridge maintenance, access to Lawson and Gable will be possible only from eastbound Howard Street, using the Crane Lane exit ramp. Traffic departing Lawson and Gable will also use Crane and will be limited to traveling eastbound on Howard toward Stadium Drive.

Students, faculty, staff and visitors who are accustomed to entering campus from Howard Street across the Roell Drive Bridge are encouraged to enter campus instead at West Michigan Avenue.
