Message from Facilities & Capital Projects Director Jason Francois: Update-East Road Infrastructure Work

Dear Colleague,

Forma Construction has continued to stay ahead of schedule and the infrastructure work on the east road is projected to be completed on June 12.

We do have some work to wrap-up in the meantime that will have a significant impact.

Here is the current schedule, along with a brief description of what each portion means to the community.

1) Next week, May 28th through 31st, Forma will reform damaged or removed sidewalks, gravel paths, curbs, and other similar components of the roadway and pedestrian access. This will not affect the current parking or closure area.

2) May 31st through June 3rd, the trench will receive the final backfill, up to the depth appropriate for repaving. This will mean saw cutting clean edges on the existing trench edge. There will be various levels of noise on these days.

3) June 4th will bring another change in parking. In order to ensure safe application of asphalt across entrance points, we need to reclose the 2900 lot in full AND keep the trenched area around the 5000 staff lot closed. The 5000 staff lot will remain open as it is at this moment. The pile containing excavated materials from project in the north lot and staged equipment will be removed, so those currently closed spots will be OPENED.

4) Patching, tack sealer, and striping will occur June 4th through 12th. Paving itself is expected to occur June 4th through 7th (3 days). *During this time, there will be fumes associated with asphalt paving.*

*Please contact Human Resources for alternate work sites and/or accommodations.

5) On June 12th, work will move toward landscaping restoration and project closeout and the work in the road and lots will be complete. All roadways and lots will be re-opened.

Facilities will work with Safety and Security to provide the best possible accessible pathways while the lots are unavailable.

Thank you for your patience and support as we begin the final phase of this project.
