SUBJECT:    Construction Update Alert - North Campus Housing Phase 1

Project Description/Location:

The North Campus Housing project includes the construction of eight buildings, totaling over 370,000 gross sq. ft. In addition to student living units, the project includes administration offices, a satellite bookstore, conference facilities, a small café, laundry, mail room and other ancillary type spaces. The project is located on the North Campus area and will encompass the existing parking lots P-355 and P-356.

Immediate Street Impacts

Continuing until August of 2009, vehicular traffic around the site and on adjacent streets will be impacted at times to accommodate construction activities and utility installations. During the month of May, there will be occasions when Scholars Drive North and portions of North Point Drive will be limited to one lane of traffic because of sidewalk replacements. During these times, flagmen will be present to direct traffic. Pedestrian sidewalks adjacent to the project site will remain open throughout the duration of the Project. Additional alerts will be issued throughout the construction period to update the campus as needed. Please see attached area map at:
