CHERRY ST. STEAM LINE REPLACEMENT PROJECT

 

Street repaving work for the Cherry St. Steam Line replacement project is scheduled to be done from  Wed, September 3rd through Sat, September 6th.  The area of street work will include Cherry St. (from North Ave. to Ferst Dr.) and Ferst Dr. (from Cherry St to the Weber Bldg).  All sidewalks will remain open for pedestrian access to buildings bordering this area of street work.  Pedestrian crossings will be maintained in the locations shown on the attached plan.   Temporary barriers will be installed to prevent access to the street;  however we request the cooperation of all students, staff, faculty, and visitors with paying attention and staying within the defined accessible areas.   

 

There will be no vehicular access for service or deliveries, therefore we ask that alternative arrangements be made during this period.  Georgia Tech Parking will be asked to tow any vehicles parked in the area of work.  

 

Please keep in mind that weather is a factor when doing outdoor work, therefore we will keep you posted if there are any changes. Download this PDF for a map.
