The partial closure of the Paseo del Sur (Paseo) will continue through December 31, 2018, as part of the ongoing construction of the new Science and Engineering Building (SEB) and the installation of a bridge that will connect the SEB to the west side of the Paseo. During the closure, there will not be a continuous route along the Paseo del Sur from the Ford Avenue Lot bus stop to the ART and EB, as well as the staircase between the ART and FLN.
