Summary of disruption: Access to the north entrance of the CLA Building near the W.K. Kellogg Rose Garden will be limited on Monday, June 25. The area will be cordoned off to allow a crane to hoist roofing material and to help ensure the safety of the campus community.

Reason for disruption: In order for the crane to remove and deliver roofing materials, the road service between the Rose Garden and CLA will be closed to pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Email notices about crane operations will be sent at least 48 hours in advance.

How does this affect me? The north entrance of the CLA Building, W.K. Kellogg Rose Garden, the paseo and a service road will have limited access.

What do I need to do? Use other entrances to the CLA Building and detours around the work site. Share this information with anyone you believe may be impacted and who may not have received this notification.

The closure of Parking Lots B and P will allow for the installation of a gas pipeline to the Student Housing Replacement Project.

Summary of Disruptions: Parking Lots B and P will be closed from Monday, June 11, to Friday, Aug. 10.

Reasons for Disruption: Work crews will install a natural gas pipe for the Student Housing Replacement Project that also will improve the pipeline infrastructure on campus.

How does this affect me? Lots B and P will be barricaded. On June 11 and June 12, faculty and staff parking permits will not be valid in Lot Q. Spaces in Lot Q have been set aside so students can move out of university housing. Vehicles without a valid housing parking permit for Lot Q will be ticketed.

What do I need to do? Commuters are urged to use Parking Structure 2, which is adjacent to Lot B, or other lots on campus.  

For any questions or more information, please contact: Mooris Taylor, senior project manager, at moorist@cpp.edu.

Portions of the walkway stretching from the University Library to the CLA Building will be torn up and replaced to establish a new pedestrian zone.

Summary of disruption: Portions of the walkway that start near the stairs of CLA (Building 98) and extend to the University Library will be demolished and replaced. A landscape buffer consisting of trees and other plants will be established between CLA and the new Student Services Building. The entrances to the CLA will not be impacted. Construction is scheduled to begin the week of June 11.  

Reason for disruption: To construct a new pedestrian corridor that links the new Student Services Building, create a landscape buffer and provide an access point for emergency vehicles. The expected completion date of the project is Wednesday, Aug. 1.

How does this affect me? Portions of the current path will narrow during the construction process. The walkway outside the University Library will provide a detour around portions of the project. Electric cart users will need to find detours because of the narrowed walkway.

What do I need to do? Follow detour signs that will be placed around the walkway project area. Share this information with anyone you believe will be impacted and who may not have received this notification. 

For any questions or more information, please contact: Bruyn Bevans, senior project manager, at Ext. 5517 or bbevans@cpp.edu.
