Closures for AMAC Construction to Impact Commuters

Utility work for UTEP's Advanced Manufacturing and Aerospace Center will result in two road closures near the construction site at Hawthorne Street and Rim Road. Commuters should expect to have their routes impacted in the coming months.

Rim Road closure

From April 1 to Aug. 27, Rim Road will be closed on the south side of the Chemistry and Computer Science Building. Traffic will need to access Rim Road through the University Avenue entrance to campus off Sun Bowl Drive.

Hawthorne Street closure

From May 13 to Aug. 27, Hawthorne Street will be closed starting at the intersection at Rim Road and going north.

No vehicular traffic will be permitted in either area during the closures, but sidewalks and pedestrian pathways will remain open.

For questions about these closures, please contact Robert Meredith at or 915-747-8515.
