Urgent Repairs - Bryan Center Garage Pathway - Ongoing into early 2020

September 6, 2019

To make repairs to the areas damaged by the flood this summer, FMD will erect a scaffolding system, which will also be a “protective pedestrian tunnel” along the sidewalk from PG 4 to the Bryan Center mid level.  As of 9/16/2019 the pathway along PG4 is now open with the protective scaffolding in place.  Thank you all for your patience and understanding during this effort to reopen the entire basement area.

Telcom Drive Reconstruction - September 2019 through January 2020

August 8, 2019

From September 2019 through January 2020, Telcom Drive will be under construction as part of the new Pratt Engineering building project.

The accessible route from Abele Quad across Telcom Drive to the Engineering buildings should remain open.

Access to Telcom building and the Co-Lab space will be available via the ADA ramp at the southeast corner of the building (though other entrances may be closed at times).
