3rd Annual New York/New England
Granular Materials Workshop
Thursday, June 9, 2005
Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT
Location of workshop parking (Mapquest): U lot at the intersection of Fountain and Pine (It says faculty/staff only, but public safety assured me there would be no problems in the summer) You can also often find space on the street around the science center during the summer.
Location of the workshop (Mapquest): Exley Science Tower, 265 Church St., Middletown, CT
The main lobby of Science Center has doors towards both the front and back. The workshop will be downstairs in room 58--there are stairs leading down in the center of the main lobby.
From points North...
Take I-91 South past Hartford. Take exit 22S to route 9. Note that this exit is on the LEFT side of the highway. You reach Middletown in about 5 miles. At exit 15 (the second stop light), turn right onto Route 66 West; this is Washington St. Go through the Middletown business district. At the 5th light (including the one at the exit), just before the tree-lined green on the left, you'll see a Wesleyan sign; turn left onto High Street. Take High Street South along the center of campus, past four stop lights. One block after the fourth stop light, turn right onto Lawn Avenue. Go past the greenhouse one block along, and you will see Exley Science Center, the 7 story building on your right. To park, continue on to the T and turn left onto Pine Street. In one block you will see U lot on your right. It is marked faculty/staff only, but is available for the workshop. There are also often spaces on the street during the summer.
From points South...
Take I-91 north from New Haven to exit 18 to Route 691/66 East; alternatively take the Merritt/Wilbur Cross Parkway (Route 15 North), to exit 68 to Route 691/66 east. Drive about 5 miles to reach Middletown. Route 66 becomes Washington Street in Middletown. Less than half a mile after you go under a railway overpass, you reach an intersection with a a tree-lined green ahead on the right. At this intersection, turn right on Vine St. Vine St. ends at a stop light where you will turn left onto Cross/Church St (name changes at this intersection). After one block you reach a stop sign at Pine St., and you will see Exley Science Center, the 7 story building on your right. To park, turn right onto Pine St. and proceed 2 blocks to the intersection with Fountain Avenue where you will see U lot on your right.
