Interlocking safety barricades and signage will be installed that clearly identify the work area and prevent faculty, students, and staff from accessing the work area. This safety zone will be located at the inside edge of the sidewalk on Cherry Street and will not prevent pedestrians from using the sidewalk. Also, scaffolding with overhead protection will be installed at the building entrances to protect faculty, students, and staff entering & existing the building in the protected work area. .
Hinman Courtyard Renovation
The Hinman Courtyard renovation project is scheduled to start March 16, 2015 and will take place on the east side of Hinman behind the Old Civil Engineering Building.
