Construction Updates

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by campus construction work and thank you for your patience.

The next phase of construction on the new STEM facility is in full swing.

October 3 Update

Starting Friday, October 5 and continuing through Friday, October 19, walkway access between the Library and Instructional Technology Center (ITC) will be temporarily unavailable. Safety fencing in that area (just east of Rose Marks Plaza) will be expanded to allow construction crews to do demolition work on the Liberal Arts facilities in that area. Fencing has to be expanded to make the area safe during demolition. Signage will be placed directing people to use alternate routes around the Library. The campus walkways map (see below; click on graphic for a downloadable PDF) is also being updated to reflect this temporary change.

Fencing is in place in staff parking lot E (see the graphic below; click on the graphic for a downloadable PDF version) and around the old Liberal Arts area. As a result of the construction work, the staff parking spaces behind the Learning Resource Center (LRC) near the Boiler Room will not be available.

We are working hard to mitigate impacts and we appreciate your patience and understanding.

Another note on STEM construction: there will also be a new hydronic line constructed simultaneously from Fine Arts to the STEM facility. This work will temporarily restrict walkway access during this construction process. Metal plates will be strategically placed over the trench to allow convenient crossing during construction.

Construction work is also underway on the pedestrian bridge that will cross Arcade Creek east of the college, connecting to the Jo Smith Nature Trail. Access to the trail is closed and the service road on the perimeter of the college (see below) is closed. Construction is anticipated to be done by October.Map of campus showing access road closure

Two monument signs will 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.
