Denton streets have seen a lot of construction lately and Welch street is no different. Drivers headed to the UNT campus were caught off guard this morning when they discovered that Welch street is closed from Eagle drive to Maple street due to construction.
With limited signage signaling the closure, drivers were slamming their breaks when they came across the barriers. Crews are working on installing water taps and finishing other repairs that had been started previously. However, the good news is, the inconveniences are only temporary as Welch street is due to reopen after Saturday weather permitting. But with the rain on the forecast for tomorrow there could be delays.
Whether you take the bus to campus or you drive, plan on leaving earlier as there will be delays. UNT transportation said there are seven UNT bus routes that could experience delays until the construction is complete.
