Acadia Drive Construction

College Park, thank you for your patience as the City completes construction along TWO segments of Acadia Drive.

Acadia Drive is closed at both Carleton Drive and between Leddy Crescent and Harrington Crescent. This will cause a delay in folks trying to use Acadia Drive as there is no through access. Please note, the construction at Acadia Drive/Carleton Drive will be complete on Friday, August 2 and open again for use on Saturday, August 3. The construction at Acadia/Harrington/Leddy will be in place until August 26.
