Ring in 2019 with a Dartmouth Parking Lot in Norwich and a New Traffic Light on West Wheelock Street
When construction begins next month on an underground parking garage to be built on the site on an existing parking lot near the Thayer School of Engineering, employees and grad students will need someplace else to park. One of those places is the 150-space lot directly across the river in Norwich in the area referred to as Lewiston. (You may have wondered what the work that took place there this fall was all about. Now you know.)
Commuters coming into Hanover from Norwich will also see other changes starting in 2019.
*Thayer Drive, a short road off West Wheelock Street that leads to the west end of campus, will be closed to all but construction vehicles beginning Jan. 1.
*Old Tuck Drive re-opens to traffic. Old Tuck Drive has been improved and widened during fall term and will be open to one-way traffic heading to campus off West Wheelock Street.
*There is a traffic light planned for the intersection of West Wheelock and West streets. The timing of the installation of the light, which will be handled by the town of Hanover, hasn’t been finalized.
