Watch that crosswalk!
Don’t try running across here. It’s much too dangerous!
New and returning students who need to cross Cleveland Avenue at Grove Street (at
the Center for Workforce Development – WD), will have to walk down to the light at
Mt. Vernon Avenue (near the Bookstore) for a few weeks at the beginning of the semester.
Construction at the entrance of campus at Grove Street has the crosswalk CLOSED for
a while, to ensure everyone’s safety while equipment and orange barrels are in the
area. Please be careful in this construction zone and cross safely at the Mt. Vernon Avenue light!
