Just in time for the start of school, the upgrade to the main campus entrance is now open in both directions and the paving and concrete work is complete, according to Jim Ravelli, university operations. While the major work has been finished, there are still about three weeks remaining to complete all project elements. The remaining work will be centered around completing the landscaping and installing the monuments near the entrance. Additionally, workers will be re-pouring curbs and sidewalks along Willamette Boulevard on either side of the entrance. There may be times during the concrete work that visitors may experience a small delay entering or leaving the main entrance but there will be no closures to the entrance for this work and a flagger will be directing traffic as needed. Please note, in order to facilitate the move-in of our students and not to disrupt orientation activities, all work has been suspended until Tuesday, August 26.
The work schedule includes:
- Week of August 25th: Complete landscaping planting and irrigation testing in median and next to sidewalks; begin curb and sidewalk work along Willamette (note there may be an occasional delay at the entrance as we complete this portion of the project); begin monument installation.
- Week of September 2nd: Complete monument installation; install lamp posts; complete raingarden and associated landscaping.
- Week of September 9th: Complete sidewalk and curb work along Willamette; final cleanup.
