The opening of the Lucinda Avenue expansion is nearing. Workers are completing the final touches to the area.
The board of trustees of Northern Illinois University approved the extension of Lucinda Avenue west, to better facilitate access for students, faculty, staff, and visitors on campus. The move, which required dismantling Douglas Hall, is the first significant step in re-envisioning the NIU campus.
The March 27 board meeting made the Lucinda project expansion a high priority project for the university. The goal was for the process to be completed by mid-November.
