Good News on the Construction Front

The beam signing was an exciting step forward for the Steinhauer-Rogan-Black Humanities Building project. But there is more exciting news as the project moves forward: The majority of campus disruptions for the Humanities Building project should be behind us. That's the word from Glenda Godwin, director of Construction and Facilities. There will continue to be one pedestrian area closed to foot traffic.

"The steps leading from the Wood Campus center to the Library will remain closed for the duration of the project," Godwin said. "Which means folks coming to Wood from Mattox or the far parking lots must go through the Library,"

An expanded H lot opened recently and you may notice the new diagonal parking spaces near Caudill Hall. The major roadwork is completed for the project and that means that the biggest inconvenience to students, faculty and staff should be over. That's not to say there won't be more small closures in the next year.

Godwin says the rest of the Humanities Building project will be more steelwork, mechanical, electrical and finishing. The final touch will be new landscaping that better connects Wallace South and the new Humanities Building to the rest of campus, providing students with more green space and more outdoor study and relaxation space.

The Steinhauer-Rogan-Black Humanities Building will be  the largest building on campus when finished.
