WRIGHT HALL SOUTH ENTRANCE TO CLOSE: The south
entry to Wright Hall will
temporarily become an "emergency only exit" to facilitate the building
of the Greenhouse classroom. The existing construction fence will be
expanded to enclose the south end of Wright Hall. Signs will be posted
on the exterior to direct pedestrians around the site. Signage will be
provided on the inside of Wright Hall to indicate that the exit is for
emergencies only. The fence will remain as long as construction
around the greenhouse poses a danger to pedestrians. The
classroom addition is scheduled for completion in late October.
The fence will be modified in September to allow full
use of the south entry. Any questions or concerns, contact Steve
Pavelec at 3-6165.
