Campus Construction

Campus maps show the facilities planning and construction project sites for 2017. The intent of the general map is to identify the locations and dates that will be affected, as well as identify the project.

As always, some projects will affect pedestrian and vehicular movements more than others. Those projects will be supplemented with additional phasing and traffic plans.

As projects progress, larger more detailed maps will be provided as needed to communicate details in advance of the changes. The two projects with the most impact on pedestrian and vehicular movements are the new residence hall and bookstore, and the Centennial Hall steam and condensate line replacement.
