Non-Renewal Project Related Traffic Changes 

Temporary traffic changes on Campus Drive West


Starting the week of 5/13, there will be a change in the circulation of vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic along Campus Drive West between Roth Way and Palm Drive. This change, which will be in effect through December 2014, is necessary to accommodate work being done as part of the construction of the Anderson Gallery and of the new energy facility on the Stanford University campus.

Campus Drive West will change from two lanes in each direction to one lane in each direction between Roth Way and Palm Drive. While access to all streets, buildings and parking structures along Campus Drive will not change, commuters may want to plan for alternate routes or additional time during the peak commute hours from 7 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m.
