Dear Stakeholder:

Beginning late next week or the following week, traffic will be shifted to the east side of the street and roundabout and will remain one-way northbound only traffic between 15th Street and the Sierra Street/Comstock Drive/Virginia Street intersection. When traffic is switched, the Virginia Street entrance to the West Stadium Parking Garage will be opened. Two-way traffic is in place on North Virginia Street between 9th Street and 15th Street.
