Growing pains are common here at NC State. As the campus population
increases, improvements are a must. Construction affects parking
and transportation. For a snapshot of what's going on around campus, take a quick look at the Construction Map.
A project which will affect anyone traveling on Dan Allen Drive is scheduled to be implemented possibly as soon as Fall Break 2012/13 school year. An access gate will be installed in the vicinity of the railroad crossing on Dan Allen Drive. Gates will operate from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Limiting access during these times will help Wolfline buses to maintain schedules and increase pedestrian safety on Dan Allen Drive.
Transit vehicles, University vehicles with (SV) or (UV) permits and emergency vehicles will have access during hours of gate operation (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.).
No other through (north/south) traffic on Dan Allen Drive during these hours.
Contractor Staging Areas
To allow contractors sufficient space to safely build
or remodel buildings, staging zones are necessary. A staging zone
is an area where a contractor places materials and equipment. Depending
on the project scope, these area are often fenced for the protection
of the materials, as well as safety of pedestrians.

projects, visit the NC
State Physical Master Plan.
Major Construction Projects Impacting Parking
- Talley Student Center Renovation and Addition - East Cates Avenue from Morrill Drive eastbound will often be reduced to one-lane traffic with parking impacts. Parking on the south side of Cates Avenue (in front of Turlington Hall) will be impacted through mid-September. The work will progress eastbound toward the Morrill/Cates Avenue intersection, which will also impact parking. As work is completed, parking will open back up for use. View staging area.
