Message from Facilities Director J. Francois: Infrastructure Work to Impact Some Roads & Parking beginning April 17, 2019

Dear Colleague,

In preparation for the construction of the new Allied Health, Science & Advanced Manufacturing building, we are rerouting and refreshing the power and telecom infrastructure supporting the north end of campus.

Starting on Wednesday, April 17, 2019, and running to the end of June, this infrastructure work will necessitate the closure of the east side road and some parking areas.  The expected dates and impacted can be viewed on this diagram.

Traffic flow into and out of the 5000 staff parking lot will be maintained, however the road north of the 5000 lot will be fully closed at the north entrance to this lot.  The road to the 5000 lot from the east gate will be reduced to one lane, with flaggers posted during construction activity.

All other east side roads and parking will be closed from the east gate up to the NE corner of the 2900 building.  The north end lots will be accessible by driving around the west side of campus.

After May 22nd we will be able to reopen the staff parking east of 2900, including travel on the road, to the approximate location of the Grounds equipment shed at the SE corner of the 2900 building.

The scope for this work is limited to trenching and installation of conduit lines and access boxes.  No wire, cable, or electrical work is planned.  This project is anticipated to have an impact on traffic and parking only.

We will schedule the worst of the noise and dust generating work on evenings and weekends.

This is a major task, limited by schedule and State project funding availability.  It must be done before the close of June 30, which I understand is poor timing.  I appreciate the community’s support and patience while the campus is made ready for our new building.  Please contact me if you have any questions.
