In case you missed the e-mail that was sent during spring break, the roads around Fondren Library will be changing.

Starting Wednesday, Hilltop Lane, the street between Fondren Library and Dallas Hall, and McFarlin Boulevard, the street between Fondren Library and Hughes-Trigg, are changing directions so that the traffic flow will go towards Airline Road, instead of away from it. The section of University Boulevard, the street between Hyer Hall and the Dedman Life Sciences building, will be closed temporarily. The section of Fondren Drive, the street by the new fountain in front of the Dedman Life Sciences building and the new education building under construction, will be permanently closed to traffic.

The changes don’t stop there. Starting in August, the traffic flow of McFarlin Boulevard and Hilltop Lane will change back so that the traffic will go away from Airline Road. University Boulevard will reopen and connect to Airline Road with traffic flowing towards Airline. Check out the SMU map and this Google map to help you see the changes.
