Sidewalk and Curb Replacement to Begin July 7

Beginning next week, contractors will be removing and replacing damaged concrete curbs in parking lots as well as damaged and hazardous portions of sidewalks across central campus.

Please be aware of and don't use parking spaces that are blocked by cones for the day, which will allow better access for the contractor and protect vehicles from unnecessary damage.

When traveling on sidewalks around campus, be aware of signage and barricades closing areas under construction for everyone's safety.
