On May 13, the project construction site limits for the Barnes Center at The Arch will be expanded to support the final summer of construction activities.
The entire north end of the site (between the Barnes Center at The Arch and the Physics Building), as well as the entire Carnegie Lot area (between the Barnes Center at The Arch and Carnegie Library), will be closed to all pedestrian traffic for the duration of the summer. This will allow the pedestrian area between the Barnes Center at The Arch and the Physics Building to be transformed. New entries to both buildings will be constructed, eliminating stairs and greatly improving accessibility.
Pedestrian access to the Physics Building will be maintained at the southeast corner of the building from the Quad. Access to Carnegie Library will be maintained at the southwest corner of the building from Sims Drive.
The east and south sides of the building will remain fenced to allow for the remainder of the interior work, façade installation and site hardscape/landscape. At the south end of the site, a steam distribution project will also commence on May 13 and continue through the summer. Pedestrian access routes will be maintained through these areas. A closure of Forestry Drive for all vehicular traffic will be required in July for approximately two weeks. This closure will be communicated to the campus community when the specific dates are identified.
The west side of the building (between the Barnes Center at The Arch and the Dome) will remain closed for the remainder of the project and will then become part of the Dome roof installation site.
Vehicles and pedestrians should observe and follow construction signs and refer to this notification for updates. For additional information please refer to the site maps below.
