New Traffic Plan

President Gary Ransdell said he’s pondering now what to put in his regular year-end letter to faculty, staff and students.

One of those items will be further addressing two-way traffic on College Heights Boulevard, which was announced on Tuesday in an email from Parking and Transportation.

College Heights Boulevard from College Street to Parking Structure One will become two-way in early June, according to the email, with the road remaining one-way as it turns into the Avenue of Champions past the parking structure.

A three-way stop will also be added at the entrance to Wetherby Administration Building and Florence Schneider Hall.

Ransdell said the changes were approved by WKU’s administrative council after consulting the Master Plan Committee. He plans to elaborate more on the process in his letter.

“It was so direct and so to the point,” Ransdell said of the email. “I feel like I need to share with the campus in a bit more detail about this being studied for the last several months.”
