Eighth Street westbound access from Lurleen northbound will open Thursday, Jan. 30 while University Boulevard westbound access from Lurleen southbound will open Monday, Feb. 3.

University Boulevard westbound access from Lurleen northbound will close Monday, Feb. 3 until mid-March to allow the contractor to install a media island, replace sidewalks and replace parking spaces.

pedestrian safety on Lurleen Wallace Boulevard for the 72,000 vehicles that use it daily.
