RE:Operating on Normal Schedule Thursday

Duke will operate on a normal schedule today.

Primary and secondary roads, which remained above freezing due to warmer temperatures yesterday, remain in good shape. Some areas of slush may exist in the early morning hours, especially on elevated surfaces. 

The forecast indicates it will be mostly sunny beginning late morning and the snow is expected to melt very quickly.

Crews are on site now addressing areas of concerns around walkways, parking lots and building entrances.

As a precaution, parking garage roofs will remain closed today until there is significant melt. Bus routes are planning to run a normal schedule today, but passengers are encouraged to monitor Duke TransLoc for real-time information about bus locations and travel.

Please be flexible with staff where possible to allow for extra travel time in the morning.
