Lot Closure — Simpson

The following message is from Facilities Services: 

On Thursday, April 25, starting at 5 a.m., the construction firm will be placing the last of the major Convergence Center concrete pours.  To accomplish this they will need to use the Simpson parking lot as a place to stage concrete trucks waiting their turn at the pump truck. 

For safety purposes the Simpson Library parking lot will be completely closed during the work to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic.  Pedestrians moving from the north end to the center of campus will be detoured to either College Ave. or through the Pollard and Melchers arcades and around the front of DuPont Hall.  

The Library will remain open and accessible via Campus walk entrance (the front door.)  As soon as the concrete pour is complete, the parking lot and the pedestrian crosswalk will be re-opened for normal use. 

Your cooperation to help us ensure everyone’s safety during this construction effort is greatly appreciated.  Please contact Len Shelton at 654-1299 with any questions or concerns.
