More detailed notice of regrading
work behind Dupont:
The service drive behind Dupont, which leads to the circle
in front of LPAC and Lang Music, will be closed from May 3rd through
May 28th, except for weekends. This is necessary to complete the
last major piece of site work for the Science Center: regrading the
road, paving, and installing the storm line which will connect the
storm water vault under the North Quad with the existing vault under
the road behind Martin Hall.
The service drive will be passable for cars each weekend.
The road surface will be irregular, a combination of compressed stone
and steel plates. However, because of the number of tripping
hazards, the road will remain closed to pedestrians throughout the
month of May.
THE SERVICE DRIVE WILL BE CLOSED EACH WEEK FROM MONDAY 7:00
