Campus Traffic Flow Changes To Begin Over Spring Break

Feb 1, 2018
SHSU Media Contact: Emily Binetti


Traffic flow changes are scheduled to begin over spring break.  Due to new campus construction and a tremendous increase in pedestrians and vehicles, a number of streets will be rerouted to one-way in order to provide the safest method of vehicular and pedestrian movement.


  • East Bowers Boulevard between Avenue H (also known as Bobby K. Marks) and Avenue I will be one-way with traffic moving west only
  • West Bowers Boulevard between Avenue I and Sam Houston Avenue will be one-way with traffic moving east only
  • Avenue I between East Bowers Boulevard and 22nd Street will be one-way with traffic moving south only   
  • Avenue J between 21st Street and West Bowers Boulevard will be one-way with traffic moving south only
  • University Avenue between West Bowers Boulevard and 17th Street will change one-way directions with traffic moving north only


  • Work for a sidewalk along Bowers Blvd (adjacent to the Estill building) will begin Feb 5 and should be completed Feb 23.  There will be alternating entrance closures to the Estill parking lot. Flagmen will be in place as needed.
  • March 10 - 18, crews will be working to reroute affected streets. Flaggers will help direct traffic as needed. 
  • Observe caution and look for signage that indicates the new one-way directional flow.
  • Plan some extra commute time during the first couple of days while people become accustomed to the new routes.
  • During construction, check the KatSafe webpage often for updates.
