(WBIR) Construction closed a section of Phillip Fulmer Way from Cumberland Avenue to Middle Drive on Monday.

Crews closed the road to build a new pedestrian bridge that will cross over Phillip Fulmer way, connecting the new Student Union with the Hill. The road is set to reopen in early summer 2014.

Vehicles can still access Middle Drive and the Hill by turning right from northbound Phillip Fulmer Way next to Neyland Stadium.

During the closure, the side walk on the west side of Phillip Fulmer Way is staying open from Cumberland Avenue to the entrance to the University Center. The sidewalk on the east side of the road is also staying open from Cumberland Avenue to the entrance to the Burchfiel Geography Building.
