Hurst and Ruby infrastructure map

Upcoming construction of a new residence hall near Ruby and Hurst halls will cause various area infrastructure closures and changes for the next two years.

A partial road closure for Hurst Lane and a change to Ruby Lane’s travel direction began July 12 and will last through July 2025. Travel along Ruby Lane is now reversed, with drivers entering the roadway from Bailey Howell Drive, north of the residence hall, and traveling north to south, eventually merging onto Hurst Lane.

The construction area, located near the intersection of George Perry Street and Barr Avenue at Suttle Hall’s former site, will be closed through summer 2025. This closure includes the portion of Hurst Lane that accesses George Perry Street.

Drivers and pedestrians are encouraged to use caution when traveling through the area.

Contact the Facilities Management Service Desk at 662-325-2005 if you have any questions.
