Dowman Drive improvements set for summer

One week after Commencement, work to complete Emory’s Dowman Drive project will resume for the summer.  These improvements are a continuation of the project that was started last summer with the new, welcoming and distinctive entrance to campus. The streetscape improvements will be concentrated in front of the B. Jones and Administration buildings.

Among the project features: a new, permanent roundabout with landscaped island at the intersection of Dowman Drive and South Kilgo Circle; brick pavers and granite curbs on Dowman Drive; improved sidewalks and crosswalks; additional street lights; landscaping; and a relocated visitors information booth near the main entrance to campus. The rest of Dowman Drive will be repaved between the Administration Building and Eagle Row.

During the project, one lane of traffic on Dowman Drive will remain open one way only to Eagle Row. There will be no vehicular access to Dowman Drive from Eagle Row: drivers must use the main Haygood-Hopkins Gate entrance. Cliff shuttle bus service will continue in the work area, pedestrian access will be maintained, and handicapped parking will be available on Dowman Drive until it is relocated to the new Oxford Road Parking Deck. 

The roadwork will begin Monday, May 17 and end in mid August. For updates on this and other campus projects, visit
