UAS Construction Update (Sep 5)

Pathway to Soboleff Building:  The Contractor has removed the existing pavement and has started placing new subgrade along this pathway.  This walkway will be closed for about 2-weeks while the contractor is working in this area.  When the project is completed it will include a wider asphalt path with a handrail on the right hand side.    Once the groundwork is prepared for this walkway, we will need to wait for a non-rainy day to pave this pathway.  We all hope there are a few of these days left before snow flies.

Campus Exterior Parking Lot Lighting. 

By the same time next week, we will have lost 35 minutes of daylight!  Besides being simply amazing to us Engineers and Astronomers that daylight can change so fast, it makes it difficult for Faculty, Staff and Students who arrive before 6 AM or leave after 7:30 PM with the parking lot lights out.  Therefore, we are having the Contractor install some temporary lighting by Monday.   This will help tide UAS over until the new LED lighting is installed and turned on.  These lights will be installed and turned on in sections, starting with the ones closest to the Egan entrance.  The Contractor will have all the LED lights turned on in 3-4 weeks.  By that time we will have lost 2 hours and 20 minutes.  How does that happen?
