Temporary closure of University Avenue

Construction crews will close a stretch of University Avenue from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 29, to allow a crane to access the roof of Eckhart Hall. In addition, a portion of the west sidewalk will close to pedestrian traffic beginning at 9 a.m. that day.

The campus community can expect the following:

--Individuals working in the east side of Eckhart Hall will be asked to leave by 9 a.m. while the crane lifts a mechanical unit onto the roof planned for between 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.

--A flagger will direct traffic while the crane is on University Avenue.
