Work on the Bevan Building parking lot will begin on Monday, August 26th and should take two to three weeks.  This is part of the ongoing waterline replacement project which is also affecting traffic on Buchanan Boulevard.  Access to ADA parking will be maintained during this construction project.

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).

This project will have four distinct phases with the most disruptive work planned for Fall Break and the Christmas recess.
