The University Boulevard Phase 2 project is underway, with installation of public roadway, new concrete curb and traffic signal upgrade. Completion of this project is expected in January 2023. Currently, the project is working on the re-alignment of Shier Rings Road between Eiterman Road and Avery Road, creating University Boulevard. Construction is also in process for a roundabout intersection at Eiterman Road and a new traffic signal installation at Avery Road/Shier Rings Road.
