Construction Heats Up in the Summer

As the spring semester draws to a close, the University is bidding and advertising a wide variety of construction projects that will take place over the summer. While construction work is a constant all through the year, the summer months are even busier than normal.

Summer is a great time to schedule short-term projects for a number of reasons. Because many students aren’t on campus, road closures and temporary utility outages are less of an inconvenience. Also, the weather (except for the heat) is more cooperative during summer months.

The University always tries to minimize interruptions, however it is unavoidable that portions of roads or sidewalks will be closed or certain entrances to buildings will be inaccessible. Faculty and staff should monitor Dialog and Dialog Extra for news of planned interruptions.
