Jordan Avenue is one of the major streets through the Indiana University campus and east side in Bloomington. It mostly runs north/south in two discontinuous segements. The southern spur starts on the south side at Southdowns Drive and runs north, eventually reaching the IU campus. It runs north by northeast north of 3rd Street until it reaches its first terminus at 17th Street. It starts again just a few hundred feet to the east (Just north of the Arthur R. Metz Memorial Carillon) and curves around the remaining part of Fraternity Row, paralell to the Bypass before ending at the north end of Fee Lane near the IU Tennis Center and the Unitarian Universalist Church.
