SUBJECT:    Construction Alert Update - UCSD Media Center Remodel

Project Description/Location

The Media Center Facility will be undergoing minor interior and exterior renovations starting July 6, 2010 and completing September 3, 2010. Renovations include demolition and reconstruction of interior partitions and finishes. Exterior renovations include the removal and replacement of the second level ramp entry on the west side. It also includes the installation of new exterior windows on the north and east side of the second floor. As part of this work effort, the contractor will be locating a large trash dumpster on the east side of the building at the existing loading dock during the interior demolition and another dumpster during concrete removal on the west side adjacent to Ridge Walk. In addition the contractor will be making deliveries across Muir College Drive and Ridge Walk. There will be periodic interruptions of traffic at this corner as a result.

Immediate Street Impacts

In July, vehicular AND pedestrian traffic between Ridge Walk and Muir College Drive will be impacted to accommodate the installation and removal of the recycling dumpsters, delivery of materials and installation of the new concrete ramp. During these times, the corner between Muir College Drive and Ridge Walk will be closed to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Detours and signage will be provided directing both vehicles and pedestrians around the impacted area. Flagmen will also be present to direct traffic. Signage illustrating alternate paths of pedestrian travel will be provided. Updates will continue to be provided throughout the construction period.
