Author: Department of Facilities Design & Operations

Holy Cross Drive, the main artery through the west side of campus, will be closed to through traffic Monday, July 16 to Sunday, July 22. The closure is necessary so that significant utility work can be completed associated with the reconstruction of Corby Hall. The closed portion of Holy Cross Drive area will be along Saint Mary’s Lake, from the Log Chapel to Saint Mary’s Road. Please refer to the map

This is what to expect:

  • If you enter campus from the main gate, your path will be uninterrupted until you get to the back of Rockne Memorial. You may then exit campus by turning west on Dorr Road toward WNDU Studios and Indiana State Road 933.
  • If you enter campus from the east gate, you will be able to travel as far as Saint Mary’s Road, where you may turn right to access Indiana State Road 933.

Vendors and others who need access to the Basilica and/or Sorin, Walsh, Coleman-Morse, Badin, Howard, Bond and Morrissey halls should enter campus from either the main entrance or Dorr Road and go around the barricades to use a temporary, single-lane access road to the buildings. Workers will direct one-way traffic. Expect delays. Those with reserved parking adjacent to Sorin and Walsh halls may use the access road to get to their spots.

In addition, there are some parking adjustments to be aware of:

  • The Rugby Lot will be closed to general parking the week of July 16 as the lot will be needed as a staging area for vehicles coming and going to Department of Athletics camps.
  • Ninety-minute parking spaces have been added north of the Main Building at Sorin Court. As of Monday, July 2, short-term parking is no longer permitted south of the Basilica.
