Back Loop Update and New Construction Project Blog
The Contractor working on the Back Loop Roundabout project will be working nights (7pm-4am) on October 7, 8, 9. They will then be paving from Caroline St. to the UAS entrance on October 15-17, provided they have decent weather. Be prepared for traffic delays while they are paving. The roundabout will not be completed this year, but will remain a “T” intersection. See the news article on KTOO for additional information.
I have started a blog for those interested in the progress of construction projects on campus. I have about a dozen posts on the project, from the rock excavation in July to the utilities installed last week. Check out what the Contractor dug up at the site under the August 8, 2013 update. This blog can be found on the UAS facilities website under Planning and Construction. You can sign up for e-mail notifications or an RSS feed.
