Campus construction update


Cable installation is scheduled to be finished this week. Activities at individual manholes along the route to complete splicing and pulling in of fiber optic cable will continue until the end of the month. Lane restrictions may cause traffic delays.


Installation of finishes and mechanical, electrical and piping materials is in progress on all floors, and faculty are being moved into new lab spaces. Sections of the building will be sealed and barricaded for decontamination and asbestos removal. Periodic noise may occur between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.


Installation of rough plumbing and tile wall finishes in showers and bathrooms continues. Installation of limestone/granite cladding on the first floor is in progress. Access to Johnson Athletic Center and Kresge Auditorium may be congested as construction continues.


Sewer replacement work continues on Vassar Street from Building 42 heading west. Traffic flow and parking will be affected near the work zone. Drain construction is under way in front of Stata site. Truck and machine movement may cause delays. The parking lot between Building 45 and the Parsons Lab is closed to allow for utility construction. This phase of construction will extend into June.
