This project has been split into 2 phases. The first phase was awarded to MPCC and the second phase was awarded to Foreman Contracting.
The Phase 1 contractor has completed the pathway between the Natural and Social Science buildings, as well as the pathway between the Natural Science and Dance buildings. The landscaping and final blacktop in this area will be completed in the spring. The stairs leading down to the Lincoln Avenue from the plaza and walkway behind Terra Ve had the majority of work completed. The contractor has mobilized and has begun work on the pathway between the Museum and the Visual Arts buildings. This is scheduled to be completed by the middle of April. New re-directional signs have been placed to help navigate these areas.
Expect some disruptive work as they demo the existing street and sidewalks in these areas. We'll update the community as soon as the contractor provides a detailed schedule for this work.
The Phase 2 contractor is currently working in front of the Music building and is scheduled to re-open the main entrance by mid-May. Work in front of the Natural Science building is scheduled to begin in May.
Access to these buildings will be maintained during this work.
This work will address the pathways and roads between the buildings as you approach the plaza from the north and south. Scope includes repair of pavements, curbs, lighting, drainage, foundation waterproofing and site improvements as necessary to restore the existing access ways.
