Bicycle, Pedestrian, & Vehicle Traffic Impact

A portion of Mell Street and also the main Ralph B. Draughon Library entrance facing Mell will close after Auburn University's Fall 2015 graduation ceremony and remain closed through Summer 2017 as the university constructs the Mell Classroom Building. 

The partial Mell Street closure will affect bicycle, pedestrian and vehicle traffic in the area. In an effort to help the campus community prepare for the temporary closure, Facilities Management has released a construction map. This map highlights the construction zone and revised traffic routes.

Parking Impact

Parking Services will have a checkpoint at the intersection of College Street and West Thach Avenue and another checkpoint at the intersection of Mell Street and Roosevelt Drive, Monday-Friday from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Vehicles with the appropriate faculty/staff vehicle registration will be allowed access to Ross Square and Mary Martin Hall parking via the West Thach Avenue checkpoint. Vehicles allowed access on Mell Street via the Roosevelt Drive checkpoint include vehicles registered to Quad residents, dropping off at the Early Childhood Center, with handicap placards and of patients visiting the Speech and Hearing Clinic. All other vehicles will not be allowed to enter. If you do need access to this area, contact Parking Services at either 844-4143 or parking@auburn.edu, and they will try to accommodate your needs.

Library Impact

The Mell Classroom Building construction project is in front of the library, but the library will remain open. Changes will be occurring inside the library to make preparations for the new building. For all the details on how the library is impacted, please visit the library page.
