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 continues with application of hydroseed for new grass this week.  New vegetation has been planted and the berm has been removed between the amphitheater and the site, creating an open, accessible area.  New lighting has been installed for increased visibility.  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.  The site remains fenced off with no public access within the fence.  Noise level will be low for these activities.  (See attached map [PDF] for work area and construction vehicle routes)
