This work is necessary to alleviate area flooding not only for FSU but also for the surrounding community. This project will have a major impact on traffic on the south side of campus. Although the City of Tallahassee will provide detour signage, it is advised that the FSU community plans accordingly when traveling in this area.

Thank you for your understanding during this period.  If you have any questions or concerns please e-mail Justin Shafer ( so inquiries can be routed to the appropriate area.
