Campus traffic, Topper Transit affected by underground electrical project

WKU’s underground high voltage distribution project will again affect campus traffic and Topper Transit for about two weeks beginning Monday (Nov. 1).

State Street will be closed at Helm-Cravens Library. Detours will be posted on State Street as well as Normal Street and Regents Drive.

As with a previous road closing in September, Topper Transit has adjusted bus routes and schedules to ensure continued transit service to the main campus and South Campus. The map is available online.

  • The White Line and Red Line will be combined into a single revised White Line route with increased frequency that will detour onto Chestnut Street.
  • The Green Line will also detour onto Chestnut Street.
  • The Blue Line will not be affected.

For Topper Transit riders, the following bus stops will be affected:

  • Pearce-Ford Tower: If traveling to South Campus, use Keen Hall stop.  If traveling up the hill, use temporary Regents Avenue stop.
  • Mimosa:  If traveling to South Campus, use DUC stop.  If traveling up the hill, walk. ADA service is available for disabled students; call 745-2361 for service.
  • Environmental Science & Technology:  Use Cherry Hall stop at the Rock House.
  • College High Hall:  Use Cherry Hall stop at the Rock House.
  • Baptist Student Ministries:  Use temporary Regents Avenue stop.
  • Chestnut Street South: Use temporary Chestnut Street stop.

Complete details and transit route map are available at www.wku.edu/transportation.
