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 majority of their pathway work which includes; between the Natural and Social Science buildings, between the Natural Science and Dance buildings, and between both the Museum and Visual Arts and Humanities buildings. Additionally, they have finished the stairs leading down to the Lincoln Avenue from the plaza, walkway behind Terra Ve, and the pathway on the east side of Campus Center North that leads down to the north parking area.
The pathway between the Museum and the Humanities building will be opened soon. We are still waiting on the new large glass windows on the west side of Humanities to be installed.
Now that we have better weather, they will come back and finish the remaining punch list items that were weather dependent.
The Phase 2 contractor has also finished the majority of their work, but unfortunately has gone out of business. The owner has agreed to finish the remaining items, which includes the new planters in the front of the Music building and Natural Science front entrance.
The pathway on the north side of Music which leads to Continuing Education in the Dance building is complete. The pathway is now open and the remaining lanscaping work is scheduled to be completed shortly.
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.
