The work will affect one traffic lane on East Cold Spring Lane, between Hillen Road and Grindon Avenue, but not during commute times, 6 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 6 p.m., city officials said. Work between Hillen Road and Overland Avenue, which runs through the campus, will be completed at night between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.
