elm street substation work 10/27 - 10/31
There is some scheduled project work to take place at the Elm Street substation (Located between the Campus Center and J.M.Greene Hall) during the week of October 27th, 2014 to October 31st, 2014.
On Monday, October 27th, there will be a contractor on site beginning at 8:00am to pour concrete on the extended footprint. This work is anticipated to last approximately seven hours and be completed by 3:00pm. There will be some noise disruption and possibly a restriction on access on the J.M.Greene Hall side due to the location of the concrete truck.
Beginning on Wednesday, October 29th, there will be a contractor dismantling line up #6 at the substation. The dismantling of the equipment is scheduled to last two days. There will be minimal or no impact to the area.
On Friday, October 31st, the dismantled equipment in line up #6 will be removed from the substation. One parking spot in the immediate area will be lost to accommodate for the corner mounted crane to off load the equipment to a flatbed truck. We anticipate the work to begin at 8:00am and be completed by 12:00pm.
