Ongoing University Construction Announcement

Georgetown University has announced details surrounding a major construction project of the new Medical/Surgical Pavilion that will affect campus traffic flow and pedestrian access.

In the coming months, pedestrian access to Yates Field House from the Hotel Conference Center and Lombardi Circle will be impacted by construction work to prep for a new road connecting the Leavey Center and West Road to Reservoir Road/Entrance 4. Those traveling to Yates from the north, including those coming from Foxhall, Burleith, and other areas west of campus, will be most impacted by the change.

Yates Field House members are encouraged to continue checking the Georgetown University Facilities website for updates regarding traffic patterns.
