Safety & Access


Safety is the university's number one priority and we want to remind people to Stop, Look, and Listen when in construction zones and be aware of their surroundings. The fences have been put in place for pedestrian safety, and we ask people to please respect the fence barriers. A crosswalk was installed across Lane Avenue to provide additional safety for pedestrians to cross the street. Flashing lights were recently installed as an additional safety feature at this crosswalk.

A Twitter page has been created to provide updates and additonal information, follow OSUNorthCampus on Twitter.


The closure of Curl Drive is permanent to accommodate the physical changes that will take place in the district. The project will include adding on to existing facilities, building new facilities, and creating green space, all that will contribute to enhancing the overall student experience. The removal of Curl Drive will enable the university to provide increased activity space and a more pedestrian-friendly environment. Maintaining access to the area during construction is a priority. We are working closely with our construction team and other partners to develop plans to maintain access throughout the changes to the area and span of the project. Curl Drive will not re-open and Spring break access patterns will change slightly from Winter break access, but similar to the plans surrounding Thanksgiving and winter break, access will be maintained for these transition times. The university will develop a plan based on the current construction process and experience and feedback from previous break traffic patterns. A system will be in place for Spring break and details will be communicated to students and parents by the end of February.
