New Pedestrian Friendly Zone
Recent improvements were made to
Milford Mall and the Library Circle (Sterling Circle) to improve pedestrian
safety. Milford Mall was renovated with the installation of pavers and
bollards at the entrance to Furman Mall, preventing normal vehicular traffic from entering this
heavily pedestrian trafficked area. Bicycles and golf carts are still allowed in
this area. New sidewalks have also been added across Furman Mall to
improve pedestrian access to Milford Mall from the parking lots just north and
south of the Chapel.
In addition, a traffic gate has been added on the road that
leads to Sterling Circle from the Trone Student Center. This gate will be
used to control vehicular access to this area of campus. If you need vehicle access to this area of campus for special deliveries or events,
please complete form linked below and return it to the Furman Police Department
via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once your form has been submitted, someone from the Furman
University Police Department will contact you regarding your request.
goal is to provide a safer environment for pedestrians and we thank you for
your patience and understanding as we implement these changes.
