Construction Update for Week Beginning: 7/10/23

Language Arts Complex - Measure M:
Construction activity continues on the interior with completion of ceilings and floors, touch up painting, and installation of office workstations. Exterior finishing continues with metal panel installation. Site work continues with concrete placement for street light foundations, sidewalks and fire lane paving. The construction gates near Forum I and the Bookstore will be open periodically for concrete finishing crews; please stay clear of open gates. The heightened concrete activity and workstation deliveries will bring more traffic entering and exiting parking lot C this week. The construction fences remain extended on the north-west side at the GenEd bldg to accommodate site work. There is no passage from the LRC through Gen Ed to the Bookstore (the entrances to the LRC remain unaffected), and on the south side, fences are 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 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 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)

Restroom Remodel Project - Campus:
Older restrooms throughout campus are being remodeled, beginning this week with the restrooms at the Student Union patio. This restroom will be shut down starting Monday, and will be unavailable for approximately 4 weeks. The nearest available restrooms are in the Student Services Center, and at the Fine Arts and Recreation Education buildings. Noise level will be low for these activities. (See attached map [PDF] for work area)

Nursing Building - Campus:
Renovation in the Nursing building continues. Please use caution around this area and watch for contractors entering and exiting the building/area. Noise level will be low for these activities. (See attached map [PDF] for work area)

Site Restoration Project - Campus:
Restoration of the old KOCE building demolition site located on the east side of campus between the Amphitheater and Fine Arts, north of Forum 2 continues. Contractors with trucks and equipment will be entering and exiting the site from the east parking lots off of Gothard St. via the access roads north and south of the Amphitheater. Please use caution in and around these areas and mind the flagmen when vehicles are maneuvering. The site will remain fenced off with no public access within the fence.
