Campaign Rally Today To Cause Traffic, Building Restrictions

In keeping with Carnegie Mellon University’s role as a facilitator and convener of important civic conversations, Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine will hold a public campaign event on campus today (Thursday, Oct. 6). Kaine will speak at 2:15 p.m. in front of Margaret Morrison Carnegie Hall at the corner of Tech and Margaret Morrison streets.

To prepare for the event, access to nearby streets and campus buildings will be temporarily restricted, and the following closures will take place.

  • Tech Street will be closed to vehicular traffic through 5 p.m. today.

  • Margaret Morrison Street will be closed to vehicular traffic from Tech Street to Donner Hall — reopening to vehicles at 5 p.m. The same section of Margaret Morrison Street will close to pedestrian traffic from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The College of Fine Arts parking lot also will close from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today.

  • From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., access to Posner Hall will be limited to the Frew Street entrance and access to Skibo Gymnasium will be limited to the gymnasium entrance near the corner of Tech and Frew streets.

  • From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Margaret Morrison Carnegie Hall will be accessible solely from the East/West Walkway, and access to The Kraus Campo from the College of Fine Arts building will be closed.
