Campus construction update


Chemistry building

Interior demolition of the building will cause dust and noise, as well as requiring occasional shutdowns of Building 18 utilities. Project completion: August 2003.

NW30 (Graduate residence)

Pile installation during the next few weeks will cause noise in the surrounding area. Project completion: August 2001.

Stata Center

Drilling of holes for tiebacks (underground wire cables that serve as temporary supports for the slurry walls) will cause noise and vibration. Truck traffic could cause delays on Vassar and Main Streets. Project completion: Fall 2003.

Massachusetts Avenue

Excavation of a fire protection main across Massachusetts Avenue will close part of the sidewalk in front of Building 9 and affect traffic using the service road at Building W20.
