ALL STUDENTS AT UCSD
SUBJECT: "REMINDER" CONSTRUCTION ALERT UPDATE - VOIGT DRIVE DELAYS
UCSD's School of Engineering has two adjacent buildings currently under construction [Computer Science and Engineering Building and Cal(IT)2]. This construction activity takes place Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 a.m and 5:00 p.m.
Currently, the utility lines servicing these buildings are being installed in Voigt Drive causing traffic delays. Signs have been posted indicating approximate 20 minute delays and flagmen continue to control the vehicular traffic. Also, the Computer Science and Engineering building is exporting soil from its site and the CAL(IT)2 site is receiving structural steel at the same time. We anticipate a large number of trucks which will impact the already slowed traffic conditions. Because of these large construction projects, these conditions can be expected for the remainder of this calendar year.
The section of Voigt Drive adjacent to these buildings will be paved on August 11, 2003 from approximately 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
During this time, it is recommended that through traffic on Voigt Drive be minimal and Gilman Drive be utilized to access the campus when possible.
