--August 5 - September 16: Reopen University Avenue access into the main quadrangles and close Cobb Gate to vehicle traffic and pedestrians. Complete bollard installation, and placement of new sidewalk.

With the temporary closure of Cobb Gate on August 5, pedestrian access from 57th Street access onto the main quadrangles will be available between Anatomy and Hitchcock Hall. A flagger will be present to direct traffic and pedestrians, and signage will be in place throughout the project.
