Exterior work fences are scheduled to go up late this week in advance of the planned installation of chilled water tie-ins at Cole Hall during spring break and the following week.
Work fences will be constructed in the rear of Cole Hall, impeding pedestrian traffic in the space between Zulauf, Reavis and Cole halls. The rear entrance to Cole Hall also will be closed because to the construction.
Access to the area for those with disabilities also will be affected. Accessible routes will be through Reavis and Zulauf halls instead of through the walk between Cole, Reavis and Zulauf.
Because the project will involve significant excavation between Cole and Zulauf, students and faculty should expect noise and possible diesel odor during construction.
