On Monday, November 4, construction crews will open the new walkway connecting the administration building to Mt. Tabor. Currently there is a construction fence along the east side of the building preventing people from using the new sidewalk. This fencing, along with fencing along the driveway from the Division Street entrance will taken down by Monday morning (November 4).
Opening this new walkway/route to Mt. Tabor is necessary as crews will be fencing off and closing the temporary walkway staff has been using, which winds around the old red cedar shed and through the parking lot. Crews need to close the area on the northeast corner of the Admin building to do excavation work. This “old route” will be closed and fenced off by the close of the business day on Friday, November 1.
On Monday, November 11, crews are planning to fence off/close the Division Street entrance for the Administration Building (not the main campus entrance on Division Street). At the same time, crews will open a temporary vehicular thruway adjacent to the new walkway between Mt. Tabor and building. Using this temporary thruway, staff with offices in the building will be able to park on the building’s east side. Keep in mind, however, that the number of spaces will be limited, and to not park in the spaces reserved for handicapped.
On this same day (November 11), crews will start removing the old cyclone fencing along SE 80th Avenue – which borders the west side of Southeast. This is in preparation to improve a neighborhood street, create bio-swales for storm water runoff, and a sidewalk and fencing along Southeast Center’s border with a residential neighborhood.
