The intersection of Alexander Street and University Place was closed to traffic starting Wednesday to accommodate construction of a new traffic circle near the future Arts and Transit Neighborhood.
The closure is expected to last until February 2014, according to an email sent to the University community on Tuesday by Department of Public Safety Administrative Captain Donald Reichling. Alexander Street will be closed from College Road to just north of the new Princeton Station parking lot.
The construction has also resulted in changes to pedestrian and bike paths. Students going to and from Forbes College should expect an additional 30 seconds of travel time, College Master Michael Hecht announced the Forbes community in a email.
While noise from the construction may reach Forbes, there will be no changes to New Jersey Transit service, parking or taxi service at this time. The Wawa will remain open 24/7.
