Message from Facilities Director Jason Francois: East Road Work on Wed, Aug 14 & Thurs, Aug 15

Dear Colleague,

Seattle City Light has confirmed that the permanent power connection made to our residence hall last week is performing as expected.

The next step is to backfill the excavation made in the road near the East Gate and patch (pave) the road. The current plan is to backfill on Wednesday, August 14 and to pave on Thursday, August 15.

While the work is progressing, the east road will be closed between the East Gate and the loading dock in the 9000 building (the “PUB”). Deliveries and traffic can still access the area by looping around campus, past the dog park, and the 2100 building. Hours of work are expected to be from 7:00 am to noon each day (August 14 and 15).

During the asphalt patching/paving on Thursday, August 15, we will have a situation similar to the patching done on the east road in June. We are not expecting significant odor or volume. However, if you pass close by the area, you will likely experience fumes. This is the type of work done on roadways all over the region, only much smaller in scope.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your support!

Jason Francois
