Construction Update for Week Beginning: 5/8/23

Language Arts Complex - Measure M:
Construction activity continues on the interior with ceilings, flooring, and interior storefront framing. Exterior finishing continues with metal panel and tile installation. Site work, underground utilities, and grading continue. To accommodate grading activity, construction fences have been extended on the north-west side at the GenEd bldg, preventing passage from the LRC through Gen Ed to the Bookstore (the entrances to the LRC will be unaffected), and on the south side blocking the pathway between the Math & Science bldg and the Business bldg/Forum 1. Adjacent sidewalks and pathways to the south may be used to navigate around this obstacle. Please use the Campus pedestrian entrances to the north between Auto Tech and the Native Garden, and to the south between Math & Science and Public Safety to access the campus from the west parking lots off of Goldenwest St; allow extra time to reach your destination. Use caution around heavy, dirt moving equipment and delivery trucks entering and exiting through Parking lot C. Portions of Parking Lot C remain barricaded for construction traffic; there is no parking within the barricades. Please watch for and obey the flagmen in this area. Roads and walkways within fenced off construction areas are not accessible to pedestrian traffic; please use alternate routes to get around Campus. Exercise caution around construction vehicles and areas surrounding the construction site. Noise level will be low to medium for these activities. (See attached map [PDF] for work areas and construction vehicle routes)

Concrete Repair - Campus:
Contractors will be on campus to cap off electrical wires and repair the walkway after the removal of a damaged light fixture near the front of Forum 1 and the adjacent restroom. Work will require the use of a jack hammer – noise level will be high at times. Please exercise caution and avoid this area. (See attached map [PDF] for work area).

Site Restoration Project - Campus:
Restoration of the demolition site from the old KOCE building is in progress. The site, which is located on the east side of campus between the Amphitheater and Fine Arts, north of Forum 2, will remain fenced off with no public access within the fence. (See attached map [PDF] for work area)

Campus Wi-Fi Project - District:
Wireless Access Points are being upgraded throughout campus. Contractors will delineate work areas. Please use caution around construction vehicles and equipment, and avoid those areas.
