Oakland Campus streets renamed

Sept. 29, 2008

KALAMAZOO--As street construction winds down on Western Michigan University's Oakland Campus, the time has come to rename rerouted streets.

WMU trustees voted at their Friday, Sept. 12, meeting to rename newly configured streets. Oliver Street has been rerouted and combined with Ottawa Street. In addition, a portion of Oliver near Oakland Drive has become its own roadway. As a result, Ottawa Street will be renamed Oliver Street while the portion of Oliver Street in front of Spindler Hall near Oakland Drive will now be called Oliver Lane.
