Fencing – The construction team is planning two layout changes:

  • The first will take place around noon June 14 and will include expansion of the south construction site to encompass the areas in front of Farinon and Hogg.  Farinon’s front entrance will still be accessible; however, Hogg’s front entrance will no longer be accessible (unless there’s an emergency).
  • The second change will take place June 18 or 19.  The panelized fencing along High Street will be removed, which will allow people to use the brick sidewalk recently completed along High Street.

Traffic – The paving crew finished milling High Street June 13, so traffic there will be normal again.  Starting this week, the project will be receiving daily deliveries, and traffic may be stopped occasionally to allow trucks to maneuver into the construction entrance.

Parking – No additional parking spaces will be affected by this week’s construction activities.  Early next week, the campus community will be allowed to park in front of Markle Hall.

Noise – The north construction site between Skillman and Markle will be limited to small equipment and demolition saws. The south construction site, however, will remain noisy due to rock jack-hammering in preparation for the new storm water system.  Additional jack-hammering will be required to break the sidewalk into smaller pieces.

Other impacts – UGI informed Whiting-Turner this afternoon that it will not start until Monday, June 18.  The work should not affect the campus as UGI had previously thought.

Within the next couple days, construction crews will begin reconstructing disability curb ramps at the intersection of Clinton Terrace and McCartney Street.  Pedestrians are asked to use the east sidewalk along McCartney until the curb ramps are restored and the fencing is moved back.
