Summer construction has been completed except for one or two relatively minor things here and there. This week we welcome back out students for the fall semester.
With the fall semester beginning, traffic will increase on campus and the Office of Facilities, Safety and Physical Plant would like to share a reminder about the changes to parking, traffic, and bus transportation due to the construction work in and around Alumni Hall. Please observe directional signage and drive carefully in this area of campus.
The renovation of Alumni Hall, and construction of our first geothermal energy field, requires West Dormitory Drive near Alumni Hall to be closed until early 2023. To allow continued to access to all parts of campus, a detour is in place to route through traffic to South Dormitory Drive or Red Dragon Drive.
In addition to the detour, the section of West Dorm Drive between Human Ecology and Morris/Bacon is open to two-way traffic and the Alumni Hall bus stop has been temporarily relocated between Human Ecology and Bacon Hall. Visitor parking spaces in front of Bacon Hall have been replaced with faculty/staff spaces and the visitor spots are now located in Lot 44 (the Human Ecology lot). See this map for visuals and details on the traffic patterns and bus stop location.
