T-Dust Alert #3 – Utilities Re-location Impact

WHAT?  Storm drains, sewer lines, and water lines must be relocated for the new science building and physical plant expansion.

WHERE?  Work to relocate the utility lines from the new science building site to the storm drain immediately southwest of Thunderduck Hall will extend under the west sidewalk entrance to Thunderduck Hall and the flag poles.

WHEN?  This phase of the work will begin January 21.  This phase of work will be finished as quickly as possible and original access routes will be restored.

WHO?  It will affect students, faculty, and staff entering the west entrance to Thunderduck Hall and individuals parking in the north two rows of the B parking lot.

WHERE?  Only one side of the sidewalk will be blocked at a time so individuals can continue to enter the west entrance of Thunderduck Hall.  A small portion of the B parking lot will be temporarily blocked for the installation of a manhole access.

HOW?   Proper safety fencing, caution tape, and metal lay-down panels will be temporarily installed to mark safe pedestrian detours on the sidewalks in the immediate areas affected.

WHAT ELSE?  It will be necessary to stabilize the area around the flag poles during excavation.  Therefore, we will not be able to fly the flags during this period of work due to impeded access to the flag poles.
