Tunnel Renovations Ongoing Near Polytechnic, Group Housing


Contractors will conduct renovations on Tunnels 51-52-53-54-55, located between the Otto and Della Seabaugh Polytechnic Building and Group Housing, this month. To facilitate this work and provide a safe pathway for students, faculty and staff to traverse the area of Group Housing, Polytechnic Building and Rosengarten Athletic Complex, fencing will be installed. To view a map of the affected areas, click here. Areas highlighted in yellow will be fenced. The installation of fencing was completed between Dec. 16 and Jan. 1.

Additionally, parking lot 4-15 Employee, located southwest of the Polytechnic Building, and parking lot 4-15 Visitor, located east of Polytechnic Building, will be used as contractor material storage areas and access to the construction site (highlighted in green), and not available for use by students, faculty, staff or visitors for the duration of the project.

Work within the tunnels began Jan. 3 with final completion to be Aug. 14. Work hours for the duration of the project will be 8 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Please use caution when near the construction zone, as equipment, materials and worker presence will make this area very congested.

Facilities Management apologizes for any inconvenience the project may cause and asks for patience and understanding as they work to improve campus infrastructure.
