The second of four phases in the Berry Street construction project is expected to be completed during the second week of October, project manager Arty Wheaton-Rodriguez said.
Phase two of construction began on July 18 and stretches from the intersection of University Drive and West Berry to Waits Avenue.
Wheaton-Rodriguez said phase three should start immediately after phase two and should be completed in the last week of December.
Junior theatre and writing double major Callie Tatum said the construction caused her to change her routine walk to classes.
“Without the construction, I just cross University and go to class," she said. "But with the construction, I have to go around to use the crosswalks to get to campus.”
Nearby businesses have also been affected by the ongoing construction.
Taco stand Salsa Limón was previously located at the intersection of Berry St. and Greene Ave., but construction caused the food truck to move a block up the street.
Delia Martinez, a Salsa Limón employee, said sales and traffic to the restaurant have been slow because of the move.
Despite recent rain delays, all construction is expected to be completed in April 2013.
