The university is in the process of a major construction initiative that will result in exciting new facilities, critical building renovations, needed infrastructure, and a more energy-efficient campus. Facilities Management is committed to making campus construction and everyday campus operations co-exist with as little conflict as possible during this phase.


18th Street is expected to reopen to vehicle traffic by August 4.

Wardenburg Drive remains closed to street traffic through early August.

The sidewalk in front of Muenzinger is closed until late August for repairs. The sidewalk along Broadway near 18th Street, in front of the University Club, is under construction until August 10. 

Lot 416 south of Coors Event Center is closed as Grounds and Recycling have temporarily relocated there through fall semester. Activity is ramping up east of Regent Drive AutoPark in Lots 436/494 for construction of a new permanent facility for Grounds and Recycling.

Expect to see tunnel utility repair work near Baker Hall, Libby Hall, and the Koelbel Building/Leeds School of Business, as well as roof repair staging activity outside the Engineering Center. The use of Koelbel and Sewall fields is limited through August as the fields undergo re-sodding.

Ongoing construction hotspots this summer include the Rec Center entrance area and Baker Hall, which are both nearing completion; the area around Folsom Stadium, which is part of the Athletics upgrades plan; and Ekeley Arts and Sciences, where chemistry labs are being upgraded. Construction continues on the East District Energy Plant north of Coors Event Center. On East Campus, watch for construction near the McAllister Building as the Sustainability, Energy, and Environment Complex (SEEC) takes shape.
