Current and Future Work

Two Week Look-Ahead

On June 16, 2014 construction will begin at the Beeler Street Entrance/Exit to the East Campus Garage. This scope of work will include the following

  • Modification of Entry/Exit to provide for a dedicated entrance from Forbes Avenue and Beeler Street; a dedicated exit lane for west access onto Forbes Avenue; and a dedicated exit lane for straight access onto Beeler Street and East access onto Forbes Avenue.
  • Installation of access controls within the garage to allow for more traffic queuing at the entrances/exits\
  • Updated directional signage

The anticipated completion date for this work is August 22, 2014.

During construction, the sidewalk along Forbes Avenue and along the east side of the garage will remain open. All vehicles accessing the East Campus Garage will need to do so from the Entrance and Exit facing the Cohon University Center.
