*Notice:  Cherry Road Safety Improvements*
July – December 2017

Through a collaboration between the City of Rock Hill, York County and Winthrop University, construction is underway on safety improvements to the portion of Cherry Road from Oakland Avenue to Alumni Drive on the northwest side of campus. This work will greatly improve pedestrian safety along this busy stretch of road for our students, faculty and staff, and visitors to campus.

During this time, there will be delays caused by intermittent lane closures and limited visibility along this portion of Cherry Road. Until the improvements are complete, it would be best to avoid this area and enter campus through our main entrance at the intersection of Oakland Avenue and Eden Terrace.

Thank you for your patience!
