Quad District: November 20, 2020 Update

Crews have started trenching near the Plant & Environmental Sciences building and Hunt Hall and continue construction in the Young Hall courtyard, near Veihmeyer Hall and on California Avenue and East Quad.


A portion of California Avenue, between North Quad and Kleiber Hall Drive, is closed to all traffic. California Avenue is closed to thru traffic between Kleiber Hall Drive and Shields Avenue. A vehicular detour is available through West Quad.
