Update for the two weeks beginning Nov. 12 and 19, 2018
Reopening Old Tuck Drive
The reopening of Old Tuck Drive, a historic roadway between the Connecticut River and Tuck Mall, will provide scenic and safe passage for pedestrians, bicycles, and east-bound vehicles. This roadway is part of an overall plan to improve the flow of traffic along West Wheelock Street, and will expedite the route for travelers from Vermont to and through campus. In addition to reopening the road, this project includes replacement of the stairway leading from Old Tuck Drive to Tuck LLC, installation of new drainage and utility lines, and enhanced landscaping. Old Tuck Drive is scheduled to reopen by January 1, 2019.
Additional improvements on the west end of Dartmouth’s campus are planned as part of the Thayer/Computer Science expansion, construction of Arthur L. Irving Institute, and the recently completed West End Master Plan.
