KALAMAZOO—An upcoming road closure will impact travel to Western Michigan University's Parkview Campus.

Starting Monday, Nov. 4, southbound Drake Road between Parkview Avenue and Stadium Drive will be closed so that contractors can remove and replace deteriorated concrete pavement. During the work, which is expected to take approximately two and a half weeks, traffic will be detoured via Stadium Drive, 11th Street and Parkview Avenue.

Traffic backups can be expected during peak travel times, so motorists heading south are encouraged to plan accordingly or find alternate routes. Northbound traffic on Drake Road will be maintained throughout the project with periodic restrictions to one lane.
