campus gateways

Strengthening the gateways into the campus has been a common theme from past planning efforts. Specifically, better defining these gateways to convey a sense of arrival, calm traffic, and provide way finding.

North Pleasant Street currently does not effectively convey a sense of arrival from the north at Eastman Lane/Governors Drive (1) or from the south at Massachusetts Avenue (2). Similarly, at the intersection of University Drive at Amity Street (3) a stronger sense of arrival is needed.

Strengthening the gateways into the campus is important to emphasize the transition from regional/higher speed roadways to lower speed roadways to/through the campus that are heavy pedestrian and bicycle routes.
