Construction relating to the George W. Bush Presidential Library is closing SMU Boulevard for six months, according to Gary Shultz , SMU’s director of web communications.

All traffic on SMU Boulevard from Dublin Street to the southbound access road of North Central Expressway will be closed from Jan 3. through the summer.

“Cars can use University Boulevard or they can go on Mockingbird Lane [as detours],” Shultz said.

Side walks on both sides of the street will also be closed but students will be able to use a sidewalk connection from the intersection of North Central Expressway and SMU Boulevard to Dyer Street, to and from the east side of campus.

“The map of the sidewalk will be sent out later this week or after Christmas,” said Shultz. “It will run from the closed intersection.”

Mustang Express will also be rerouted for the the closing. A temporary stop will be placed at University Boulevard and Airline Road.
