ISC work at Quinn roadway exit
Utility work will begin on Thursday, October 13, at the Quinn roadway exit ramp to University Drive West near the service and supply lot as part of construction for the new Integrated Sciences Complex.
The Quinn roadway will be open but reduced to one narrow lane for approximately two weeks while crews dig a trench for utilities. A police detail will direct traffic onto University Drive West. This utility work off the ISC construction site will continue to take place through the fall and will eventually impact the service and supply parking lot and loading dock roadway.
On the ISC site, crews are installing reinforcing steel, electrical conduit, and other utilities. The 16-inch concrete base slab for the central section of the ISC foundation and the east wing will be poured. Also, concrete will continue to be placed in the service and supply tunnel area. Trucking of soil will continue as needed.
Parking reduced in Lot A beginning October 17
Parking capacity will be reduced in Lot A beginning Monday, October 17, to accommodate construction of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate. Fences to mark the border of the construction site will be erected, resulting in the reduction of more than 100 spaces on the east side of the lot near the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum. The Lot A entrance and exit will remain the same.
South Lot to lose additional spaces for Wheatley roof project
The fenced construction zone in the South Lot will be enlarged on Thursday, October 13, to accommodate a crane for the Wheatley roof and waterproofing project. The area, which currently takes up 12 parking spaces adjacent to Wheatley Hall, will be enlarged by six more spaces to accommodate the contractor trailer, the crane, and other construction supplies and equipment.
Access to a section of the Wheatley plaza overlooking the South Lot will be restricted due to crane activity. The crane will be used intermittently to hoist materials and equipment to and from the roof throughout the fall while crews work on the $2.4 million roof replacement and waterproofing project.
