Traffic and maintenance

Jefferson Street Closure: Due to Student Experience Center crane demobilization, Jefferson Street between Waldo & 26th will be closed March 1, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Benton Place Street and Parking Changes: During the Washington Way Realignment construction project (March 2014 – September 2014), Benton Place will be changed to two-way traffic.  This change will provide temporary two-way connection between Jefferson St. and Washington Way, to alleviate congestion caused by the closure of 15th Street. Benton Place is located just west of Kerr Administration and McAlexander Fieldhouse.  At the conclusion of the project, Benton Place striping will be restored to its existing one way northbound configuration.  For more information, see http://oregonstate.edu/dept/facilities/cpd/construction-traffic-and-safety.
