As the semester concludes and UW-Madison students move out of dorms, part of North Lake Street will be closed to traffic for a week.

The closure, which affects the 300 block of North Lake Street between West Johnson and West Dayton streets, will begin Saturday at 6 a.m. and end Saturday, May 13 at 6 p.m.

The block will close to accommodate about 7,400 students who will be moving out of 19 UW-Madison dorms.

Next Friday is the last day of final exams, and students are expected to move out of residence halls by Saturday.

Sidewalks on the block will remain open throughout the week and traffic on West Johnson and West Dayton streets will not be affected. Route 82 buses will be detoured to avoid the closure.
