SUBJECT: North Campus Infrastructure Improvements – West Circle 2014; Construction Project Communication Notice
On approximately May 5, 2014, the final phases of the above mentioned construction project will commence. Construction will involve complete road reconstruction along West Circle Drive and Auditorium Road, as well as the construction of mechanical vaults, steam tunnels, and associated utilities. Between May 5th and mid-July, West Circle Drive will be closed from Lot 6 (MSU Museum) to the Linton Hall parking lot, and Auditorium Road will be closed from West Circle Drive to the Hannah Administration Building parking loop. During this time West Circle Drive will be two-way traffic from Kalamazoo Street to Lot 6 (MSU Museum) and on-street parking in this area will be temporarily unavailable. After mid-July, West Circle Drive will be restored to one-way traffic, Auditorium Road will be open to south bound traffic only, and the West Circle Drive on-street parking in this area will re-open.
Between mid-July and August 16, 2014, West Circle Drive will remain closed to thru traffic from Auditorium Road to Linton Hall parking lot. North bound Auditorium Road between the Hannah Administration Building parking loop and West Circle Drive will also remain closed. Access to the Linton Hall parking lot will be maintained at all times via two-way traffic on West Circle Drive from East Circle Drive for the entire duration of this project.
The overall project scope includes earthwork, lighting, sidewalk, curb/gutter, standard asphalt roadway, pavement markings, water main, storm and sanitary sewer, steam service, electrical duct bank, communication duct bank, steam tunnel repair, and landscape work. The final substantial completion date for this project has been set for August 16, 2014. During the period of construction, please use caution around construction areas and equipment.
