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 stairs leading down to the Lincoln Avenue from the plaza and walkway behind Terra Ve have also been completed.
The contractor has also finished the pathway between the Museum and the Visual Arts buildings. The remaining roadwork between the Visual Arts Building and the Student Center will be completed by the end of June.
They have also finished the pathway on the east side of Campus Center North that leads down to the north parking area. Some landscaping work remains, which will be completed this spring.
The Phase 2 contractor has finished their working in front of the Music building with the exception of some planters which will be done this spring.
Over Winter Break, the pathway on the north side of Music which leads to Continuing Education in the Dance building was started. The pathway is now open and the remaining lanscaping work is scheduled to be completed this May.
Work on the front and back of Dance is nearly complete, with the remaining stone wall caps scheduled to be installed as soon as weather permits.
Work continues at the front of the Natural Science building. The new concrete ramp and planters are being poured, with an anticipated finish this March. The entrance is scheduled to be completed by the end of April.
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.
