The John Paul Jones Arena is still under construction, but plans to aid traffic flow around the complex are already underway.
Construction plans for a North Ground connector have been unveiled.
The road will run a half mile from Massie Road to the Route 250 Bypass.
This will provide another avenue for traffic at the University.
The connector will be the first new public road built in the area in the past three decades and is expected to be completed by June 2006.
