Relieving the building backup

Campus map now features construction advisories, road closures, alternate routes

The new map highlights construction zones, road closures and detours.

TOWSON, Md. (June 30, 2010)—Construction is a fact of life at any expanding university, but headaches don't have to be. Towson University is working to alleviate the growing pains of campus construction with its new online construction map, an interactive tool that allows users to view up-to-date information on construction areas, anticipate bottlenecks and avoid travel delays on campus.

Whether you're visiting TU for the first time or just want to find the quickest path from your car to the classroom, the construction map will help you plan your route. It's part of the university's existing map tool, so you'll still have access to all the interactive features you've come to expect—including zooming, panning and locating points of interest—now with an additional layer of construction advisories, including:

  • current construction zones
  • road and sidewalk closures
  • changes to parking areas
  • estimated project completion dates
  • alternate routes for drivers and pedestrians

To access the construction map, visit the campus map on the TU website (accessible via the "Maps" link in the global navigation of every page) and select the "Show Construction" option.

The construction layer is the first major addition to TU's interactive campus map since it was unveiled in late 2009. The map is maintained by the TU Design Center and based on a Google Maps application developed by the geography department’s Geospatial Research and Education Lab.

Find complete information on construction and traffic impacts on TU's Architecture, Engineering and Construction website.
