Share your input on traffic patterns in and around campus
The Physical Environment Committee (PEC) of University Council seeks your input in identifying specific problem areas related to pedestrian crossings and traffic patterns in and around campus. Since the majority of these intersections are operated by the city, the committee will be meeting with Akron’s transportation engineer at its March meeting to address the campus community concerns.
Please send your input to Dorothy Gruich at Gruich@uakron.edu by 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 22.
For further information on the Physical Environment Committee or University Council, visit University Council website.
