Bollard Project on Commons Begins June 1st

May 25, 2018

The project to install bollards on each end of the commons is scheduled to begin June 1.  They will start on the north end, and once that is completed, move to the south end.  The installation takes about a week, and then the cement must cure for a couple of weeks to support vehicular traffic.  Each side should take roughly three weeks total.  Pedestrian traffic along the commons will not be impacted, and they will maintain an accessible route.

Vehicular traffic on the commons will be restricted during the project.

Please contact Victoria Janowiak (x3565) if you have any questions or concerns!

Emergency closing at Ransom Street

May 17, 2018

There is a steam leak in the underground line in Ransom Street between the Music Building and the Student Center, which has also impacted AT&T utilities.  Facilities is in the process of coordinating an emergency repair, which will force a street closure at the north end of Ransom.  This means there will be no left turn from Lyon Street onto Ransom, so individuals needing to access the Bostwick Ramp will need to enter Ransom from Fountain Street.  All exiting ramp traffic will also need to turn right toward Fountain Street.

This repair will begin as soon as Facilities can coordinate the work and coordinate with the City.   At this point, the estimated length of the project is unknown, as that will need to be determined once they can assess the damage.

Please share this information with your constituents as a “heads-up” that this closure will be coming.  Contact Victoria Janowiak if you have questions!
