Construction and Renovation Updates
July 2, 2009
The Betty and Norman Levan Hall, Summer 2009
The large piece of granite is giving way without the use of rock hammer, and the pouring of footings may begin as soon as Monday July 13. Some saw cutting and chipping of the ledge of Peterson is planned to take place during the day on Wednesday July 8 and Saturday July 11. This should not cause much disruption.
The stone retaining walls to be built south of Weigle Hall have been slightly delayed, but should begin on Monday July 6.
The re-direction of the entry road is expected to begin Monday July 13. This will involve ripping up the asphalt, pouring dirt, and putting in a new curb, right around where the yellow paint ends (where you turn right into campus and Camino Cruz Blanca runs up to Wilderness Gate). There may be some slight traffic delays in the case that a one-way is necessary.
The return of hot water to Weigle and Santa Fe Hall is still expected to take place in mid-July. Also, the lack of water and gas service in the Fine Arts Building will continue through the same period of time. The plan to turn the water to Weigle off for the day has been delayed until over the July 4 holiday weekend.
New construction hours are 7:00a-3:30p, Monday through Friday.
Please keep an eye out for designated walkways and be respectful of the construction boundaries, which are blocked off by fencing. Additional information will be posted as it becomes available. Levan Hall will be built as a LEED Silver Certified Building, located between the Fine Arts Building and Weigle Hall.
COMING SOON, the week of July 6: Web Cam! Check back here next week!
