Pedestrian underpass

Rendering of the future pedestrian underpass.

Construction is underway on a new pedestrian underpass to help students and visitors safely cross Route 63 to reach classrooms and residential halls. This new underpass will replace the existing tunnel that is used to cross Highway 63. 

To complete the underpass, a portion of Highway 63 will be closed, starting Monday, March 25. The section that will be temporarily closed is located north of Tim Bradley Way and south of Watts Drive. It will be closed up to three weeks.  

To reduce the impact on local traffic and campus activities, the closure will start at the same time as the spring breaks for both Rolla Public Schools and Missouri S&T. Construction crews will work 24/7 to minimize the length of time the highway section must be closed.  

During the closure, the City of Rolla and S&T will provide clear signage to indicate alternative routes for drivers to reach their destinations.
