More of Barry Hall has been demolished as the contractor moves from east to west on the project. The 125-foot high-reach excavator is surgically removing more and more of the building every day. The job should be completed by the middle of October 2015.
The portion of Oregon Street near campus that has been blocked for several months could reopen as early as the week of Aug. 31, 2015. The area was paved over Aug. 28, and needed to be restriped. The street was closed approximately between Kerbey and Cincinnati avenues for several months to reroute a main 18-inch sewer line that would serve a new business in the area.
A little landscaping and a few new signs to identify buildings are the only things left to do in the Centennial Plaza/Old Main areas. Crews will continue to add a few shrubs, trees and flowering plants in the campus core. Crews also will install a few more of the exterior locator signs in front of Old Main, Quinn and Vowell halls, and the Fox Fine Arts Complex.
