Upcoming Paving Projects

Facilities Management is looking to expedite some much needed road repairs in designated areas on campus. There are paving projects planned for the summer of 2015 but due to the recent harsh winter conditions we experienced, we need to accelerate some of the project work prior to this year's Commencement and Reunion weekends. We apologize for the short notice and realize that it is an imposition but we are looking to ensure that the roadways are safe for passage during the busiest part of the Spring season for everyone.

The repair work is in the following areas:

  • Along upper College Lane, sections from the McConnell Courtyard to the Lyman Plant House. 
  • The intersection of College Lane and Green Street, located adjacent to Tyler House, Tyler Annex and the Conference Center.
  • Along lower College Lane, sections along the ITT and Ainsworth Gym.

  • Beginning at 7:00am, there will be a construction crew to rip up the asphalt at the intersection of College Lane and Green Street. 
  • Traffic will need to blocked off along College Lane - at the vicinity of the steps at Sage Hall...... This will allow local traffic to the Athletic Center complex ONLY from West Street.
  • Traffic will be diverted at the construction site to Green Street - the lower College Lane will not be accessible.
