Construction Activity as of August 6, 2020

The biggest impact remains the closure of North Quad. 

Approximately four crews will be working during this timeframe. Crews 1 and 2 are installing pipe on North Quad while Crew 3 does the same on East Quad. Crew 4 is working near the Enology Lab Building on the construction of a heat exchanger building as well as nearby trenching.

Please note that the pedestrian crossings shown through the fencing on the map may be closed at some points during construction for public safety reasons.
