During the week of Dec. 19, Hill Street between University and Buchtel avenues will be reduced to one lane to allow workers to install an electrical duct bank under the street. The duct bank will provide additional electrical power to the Guzzetta Hall addition.

During construction, a flagman will direct traffic during working hours (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) During non-working hours, the road will be plated and open to two-way traffic.
