Activity Updates - Sustainable Infrastructure Program

Over the last few weeks of the spring semester, you will continue to see construction activity on campus. The Sustainable Infrastructure Program (SIP), will eliminate the majority of campus greenhouse gas emissions, improve energy efficiency, reduce campus water consumption, improve building comfort, and reduce operating costs.

Street closures will pause for a few weeks until after commencement. There will be no traffic disruptions from June 3 to June 6. The Woodland street closure north of the Lorain Street intersection will begin on June 7 and should last for approximately 7-10 days.

This year’s underground work includes hot water and chilled water pipes getting installed from the Services Building and heading to the north up to Union Street Housing, in the general vicinity of Woodland Street. The contractor is installing geothermal water pipes from the central Services Building to the north practice fields with the routing being on the east side of Mercy Hospital, and then running along the western edge of the soccer field and track up to the north fields.

Other Work on Campus

Beyond the Sustainable Infrastructure Program, some other work activities on campus will have an impact on pedestrian and bike traffic. The Center for Engaged Liberal Arts (CELA) project continues in the Mudd building. This project involves a renovation of Mudd A-level into new student counseling, engagement and activity space. It involves a complete rebuild of the former Center for Information Technology spaces and lower courtyard enhancements to all direct access to CELA from the A-level courtyard. This work includes installation of a new concrete ADA ramp for the lower courtyard. The new concrete work will be completed this spring. In support of this work, the sidewalk heading in the southwest direction from Mudd Library will be designated for equipment, and wayfinding signs will identify pathways for pedestrians and bikers to follow.

For questions regarding the Mudd/CELA project, please contact Brad Burrer at ude.n1653463345ilreb1653463345o@rer1653463345rubb1653463345 (440-935-0909).
