Campus construction update


MEDIA LAB EXTENSION

Demolition of Buildings E10 and E20 beginning next week may generate some noise, odor, dust and vibrations.

RADIATOR WORK

Replacement of steam traps in radiators throughout campus continues. Work is being done between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. Check the web site below for the buildings scheduled each week.

MEMORIAL DRIVE

Construction activity associated with installation of traffic signals has begun at the Memorial Drive intersections with Wadsworth and Endicott streets. Work will take place Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and is expected to continue through December. On-street parking will be restricted for the duration

MASSACHUSETTS AVENUE

While installation of storm drain pipes continues on Albany Street, the street will be closed to through traffic from Massachusetts Avenue to Osborne Street, although entrances to the five MIT parking lots, residences and businesses will remain open.

SIMMONS HALL

Continuing placement of concrete may generate noise and affect traffic. Two-way traffic in front of the project continues in narrowed lanes.

ZESIGNER SPORTS AND FITNESS CENTER

An increase in the use of movable cranes and concrete delivery may result in congested accesses to the Johnson Athletic Center and Kresge Auditorium for vehicles and pedestrians.

70 PACIFIC ST.

Generation of utility connections may result in dust, mud and noise. Traffic may also be affected as steel is erected.

VASSAR STREET UTILITIES

Underground utility work across Amherst Alley is expected to take two to three weeks. The sidewalk leading to the Johnson Athletics Center will be closed as a fire protection line is installed; pedestrian traffic will be rerouted to the north side of Vassar Street. Excavation for hot water piping begins behind Building NW30 and progresses eastward to Building NW14; access to the rear of these buildings will be severely restricted.
