Campus Construction

On Monday, April 11, 2022, Chancellor Drale and Vice-Chancellor Ganz announced several campus improvement projects. In fact, work has already begun with the removal of the fence at Jack Stephens Center Parking Lot 13 along 28th Street. These projects will touch many areas on campus at different times over the next few months. With that fact in mind, the Facilities Management department, in coordination with our contractor partners, is making every effort to avoid disruptions to on-campus classroom instruction and regular business operations. To make you aware of where the contractors will be working, Facilities Management will send a weekly email announcing the locations for the days ahead.

This week pressure washing will continue at a variety of locations across campus, most notably the Parking Deck pressure washing will start Tuesday. This work requires us to close the Parking Deck for two weeks. The Metered Lot resurfacing and striping will start on Wednesday. Visitors can park at the metered parking areas near the Wrestling building or tennis courts. The contractor will be working in Parking Lot 13 West making additional repairs to the area along 28th Street and removing the unused driveway. Clearing along the north section of Coleman Creek between Parking Lots #13 & 14 continues and the pedestrian trail will remain closed. The Earth Science building demolition project continues this week as the contractor finishes removing the debris. Finally, there is a small project on the northside exterior of Fine Arts.

Please use caution and avoid areas where the contractors are working. For your safety, never enter into an area that has been fenced off for construction. Areas around the lift equipment and where the contractors are working overhead will be roped off.
