Campus construction update


Utility relocation is scheduled to begin this week. Work will start at the intersection of Main and Ames Streets and progress south towards Amherst Street. Vehicular and pedestrian traffic will be affected during the installation of underground conduit ductbanks. The work will generate construction noise from machinery, trucks and equipment such as saws and jackhammers.


Steel sheeting being driven into the railroad right of way may cause disruption to occupants of Buildings 44, 45 and 48. Underground utilities digging behind Buildings NW21, NW12, NW13, NW14 and NW15 may result in noise, dust and vibrations.


Activities involving concrete delivery and pouring may disrupt pedestrian and vehicular traffic and cause noise and some utility shutdowns.


Activity on the Vassar Street duct bank may affect pedestrian traffic, and concrete placement may generate noise and affect vehicular traffic.
