A portion of Cates Avenue, between Jeter Drive and Jensen Drive, will be closed from May 8 to May 10. This will result in a unique traffic pattern to navigate around this closure. Traffic heading east on Cates Avenue will be directed into the exit of the surface portion of the pay lot and out of the entrace to the surface portion of the pay lot (red arrows in the image below).
