On Thursday, June 26, 2014 the contractor for the New Entrance Project will close the gates around the Plaza between Admin Building and the RAC.
Over the last few weeks the Project Team has been preparing the site and finalizing plans with the Maryland Department of the Environment to protect our environment during the project. Construction to the Plaza site has been approved and work can now begin. This closure will be in place until August 15, 2014, after which the work area and building entrance points will change. We will be sure to provide you with updates and new signage at that time.
The doors of buildings adjacent to the Plaza, such as Admin, the RAC and one of the entrances to Sondheim, will be closed with emergency access only. There will be signs leading occupants to the alternative building entrances.
To access the Admin building, visitors will need to use the side entrance by the coffee shop. If you plan to commute to other campus areas and buildings from the main entrance, including Sondheim and Sherman Hall, detour signs will direct you behind the Admin building and through Sherman Hall court yard. For more direct access to the main campus walkway, use the path between Admin and Sherman Hall. A temporary enclosed path adjacent the construction site has been created to the front entrance of the RAC. Administration Drive and the Admin Garage will remain open during this construction phase.
