Closing of Walkway Near the Newly Erected
Veterinary School Building
Please follow the pedestrian detour signs. For everyone’s safety we do not want to see pedestrians walking in the traffic lanes along Baltimore Ave.
From now until August, 3800 Woodland Walk—the walkway between the new Veterinary School building and the existing buildings—will be closed from 38th Street to 39th Street in order to complete construction of the bridge connecting the new building with the rest of the complex and to finish exterior construction in that area.
No pedestrian traffic will be allowed in that area. Since there is not enough roadway for a pedestrian walkway along the 3800 block of Baltimore, signs will also be placed at 39th and Pine telling all pedestrians to cross at the light at 39th and Baltimore/Woodland and use the sidewalk on the VA Hospital side. Pedestrians can then cross at 38th and Baltimore to get to eastbound Hamilton and Woodland Walks. Another suggested walking route would be to go the 3900 block of Pine, walk through the small park adjacent to the Veterinary Hospital, go north through the driveway from the hospital entrance and onto Spruce Street.
