Parts of Pollock Road Closing For Installation Of New Automated Gates

Parts of Pollock Road will close to traffic starting today to allow the university to install new automatic traffic control gates near Old Main, according to Penn State News. The project is expected to finish by November 23, barring any weather delays.

The new automated gates will replace the existing automated bollards (those black posts in the middle of the road). The switch will allow for a greater control of traffic, less maintenance, and overall greater reliability. The gates will be similar to the ones that were also installed at the campus parking garages this year; they’ll also be connected to the new parking access and control system utilized by the parking decks.

Pedestrian access will not be affected on Pollock Road, though some sidewalks may be narrowed. When the project is completed, the newly installed gates will also have a 5-foot gap to allow bicycles through when the gates are closed to traffic.
