Tepper Quad Site Preparation Begins May 19
Site preparation for the Tepper Quad project is scheduled to begin two days after commencement on Tuesday, May 19.
The work will entail digging a 28-foot deep trench across Forbes Avenue to bring utility lines from main campus to the Tepper Quad site at the Morewood parking lot.
The work will last through the summer and reduce traffic to one lane in each direction between the Collaborative Innovation Center (CIC) and Morewood Avenue.
Vehicles must turn right from Forbes to enter the Morewood lot; left-hand turns into the lot will be prohibited. Pedestrian detours will be in effect as well.
Bus stops will be affected. The westbound bus stop across from Cyert Hall will remain, however the westbound stop across from Hamburg Hall will be removed. The eastbound stop near Hamburg Hall will move westward toward the CIC drive.
The utility work will be completed before the start of Orientation in late August.
The Tepper Quad construction project will cause about 345 of the 640 Morewood Lot spaces to be reassigned during this spring’s parking allocation process. Those spaces will be compensated by new surface lots on Filmore Street and S. Neville Street, and additional spaces in the lot located south of Forbes at Craig Street and the CIC lot.
The above image shows the location where a 28-foot deep trench will be dug to run utility lines from main campus to the Tepper Quad site at the Morewood parking lot.
