Construction Updates

Pardon our dust! To keep up with a growing campus and an ongoing improvement plan, ARC has several projects in the works to make life at ARC better in the future.

Here are construction-related updates:

  1. The new Computer Math Complex (CMC) is complete and all buildings are open.
  2. Demolition of the Liberal Arts area will happen in spring. Fencing is being placed the week of Feb. 7, 2018. The graphic below shows walking aroutes around the fencing (as of Feb. 7, 2018). Click on the graphic for a PDF version.

Current Projects

Arcade Creek Bridge (TBA)
ARC will provide access to Arcade Creek for construction of the proposed pedestrian bridge project to be owned by Arcade Creek Recreation and Park District. The sewer line that is currently being used as a crossing path will be gated off. Some parking spaces in the stadium lot will be lost; the perimeter road and Jo Smith Nature Trail will both be inaccessible. The contractor is expected to begin work in early October on this project.

Monument Signs (March-June 2018)
Two monument signs will soon be erected at the northwest corner (College Oak & Myrtle) in parking lot D and in the southwest corner (College Oak & Winding) right outside the fence to the Stadium parking. Approximately 10 parking spots will be temporarily lost during construction in parking lot D. Construction should begin in March 2018 and be complete in June.

Liberal Arts Replacement Infrastructure/STEM (March 2018-Fall 2019)
Demolition of the Liberal Arts facilities will begin in March 2018. There will also be a new hydronic line constructed simultaneously from Fine Arts to the STEM facility. There will be restricted access from the Administration Building and Raef Hall to Student Services, Library, etc. Metal plates will be strategically placed over the trench to allow convenient crossing during construction.

This project will consist of three phases, all overlapping.
Phase 1: The first step of this project is demolition of the Liberal Arts complex. On Feb. 7th a fence will be set up lining the perimeter of Liberal Arts.
Phase 2: A Hydronic line will be trenched - more to come
Phase 3: Construction of the STEM facility

Completed Projects

Football Stadium Scoreboard (September 2017)
A new scoreboard has been installed in Beaver Stadium.

Portable Village (June-August 2017)
The MMLC has been relocated from the Liberal Arts area to Portable Village 604a and 604b. MESA was also relocated to the Portable Village.

Athletics Asphalt Work (June-October 2017)
Over summer and early fall the parking lot behind Adaptive PE and in front of the new soccer stadium was re-asphalted. This project is completed.
