The UNCG tunnel, built to run underneath the railroad tracks from Oakland Avenue to West Lee Street, opened April 1st, the News & Record reported. The underpass connects Spartan Village, a residence hall complex on Lee Street, with the main part of campus.

The tunnel, which was a project started by UNCG in 2012, is 170 feet long and cost about $10 million to build. The university had hoped to open it in August, before the start of the school year, but bad weather repeatedly delayed its construction.

The underpass was a joint project of UNCG and the N.C. Railroad Co. The News & Record posted a gallery of pictures of the tunnel, which can be seen here.
