Changes in pedestrian walkways due to Phase II of the housing project
Walkway changes planned during construction
Changes have been made in pedestrian walkways due to the start of construction on Phase II of the student housing project.
Phase II officially began Feb. 1 with a ground-breaking ceremony. Phase II involves demolition and replacement of Lackhove, Kieffer and McCune halls. That demolition has already started on McCune. Demolition of Seavers Apartments and Etter Health Center, part of Phase II, will begin after the health center moves into its new space in McCune II around Spring break. Harley Hall will be demolished after Spring Commencement 2014 for green space in the area.

Due to the Phase II construction, changes have been made in pedestrian walkways as shown in the drawing above. For a larger version of the drawing, click, here.
The construction area is shown in orange and includes the existing and planned residence halls. A pedestrian pathway around the site is shown in blue. All members of the campus community are asked to be aware of construction vehicles entering and leaving the site. No one is permitted within the construction site and everyone is are asked to respect the contractor’s fence line.
A limited closure of the sidewalk in the vicinity of McCune Hall on Lancaster Drive will occur during the next several days as part of the demolition of McCune. A partial lane closure on Lancaster Drive will also sometimes be needed during the demolition as McCune is so close to the road. York Drive will also be realigned in the next few months to give more room for the new McCune Hall. Road changes will be announced when information is provided by the contractor.
