Campus custodial cleaning due to recent smoke particulate 9/25 – 9/27

Facilities Liaisons,

As a result of the recent smoke particulate event, Facilities Services will be cleaning all office and workspace horizontal surfaces in all general funded buildings this coming weekend, September 25-27.  Crews will follow UO Safety & Risk Services recommended safety guidelines requiring wet mops/wipes and HEPA equipped vacuums to be used in all cases. Cleaning guidelines prohibit dust spreading devices such as dry dusters, brooms, or non-HEPA equipped vacuums.

Providing safe and clean workspaces for our campus community is a priority. To provide this service most efficiently and effectively requires a well-orchestrated and highly coordinated 1,000-hour effort to be concluded by Sunday evening.

Occupants can aid in this effort by:

  • Removing items from horizontal surfaces needing cleaned. To reduce the chance of damage/loss, Facilities crews will not move or clean individual items.  Surfaces not cleared will not be cleaned.
  • Requesting a space NOT BE CLEANED by placing a note on the door clearly stating you would like that space skipped.

All requests received after this campus-wide effort is complete will require an index and need to be scheduled.  Please contact CPFM Work Control Center with questions or concerns.

Campus Ventilation Filter Replacement Project

As a result of the recent smoke particulate event, Facilities Services is preparing to move forward with a blanket HVAC filter replacement as well as the removal of ash from our intake and coil assemblies across the E&G campus.   We will follow our standard notification protocols as we do when outages are required for routine preventive maintenance activities. The Work Control Center will communicate with each building (time and duration of each outage) before the work is done.

With Fall term starting in less than two weeks, Facilities Services is evaluating our human resource availability to determine options to reduce the duration of this effort.    We hope to complete this project in 6-8 weeks.


  • 80 E&G buildings having HVAC systems
  • 435 air handling units (AHU)
  • 4,200 filters and clips

Regardless of the available resources, all facilities cannot be completed at the same time.  Facilities Services will prioritize this effort as follows:

  1. Systems experiencing filter alarms or failed filters
  2. Childcare/animal Facilities
  3. Science Facilities
  4. Buildings scheduled to be OPEN
  5. All others

Individual buildings may fall into any or all of these categories.

Common Carrier Receiving on Campus During COVID-19


We would like to remind the campus community that each department will need to make arrangements for incoming package delivery from common carriers such as UPS or FedEx.  Unfortunately, at this time there is no one central receiving area that has the appropriate combination of tools, space, and personnel to accommodate the diverse receiving needs of our entire campus.

Options Available to Ensure Successful Receipt of Packages

  1. Arrange for delivery to off-campus addresses. When shipping to off-campus addresses, be sure to document the business purpose and reason for shipping to the off-campus site, and keep that documentation with your purchase record. When using a P-Card to purchase UO business-related items and have them delivered to a UO employee home address, you must attach off-campus delivery documentation to the appropriate expense line in Concur. Note: Duck Depot can deliver only to valid UO campus addresses (loaded as selectable options). Contact Purchasing and Contracting Services (PCS) if you have questions about this section.
  2. Arrange for an employee to be present to accept a delivery. Document the employee’s campus access if a department resumption plan is not in place.
  3. Pick up the delivery from the carrier’s facility.
  4. Explore option 1 through 3 first. In exceptional circumstances, contact Mail Services in advance of the anticipated delivery date to make a specific arrangement.

Unsuccessful Delivery Attempts: General Practices of the Most Common Carriers


If the delivery address is inaccessible (e.g., an office is closed), the driver will make 3 delivery attempts before returning to sender. If the package requires a signature, UPS will hold onto the package for 5 business days before returning to the sender. UPS has indicated that, on a case by case basis, they may be able to redirect a package at the discretion of the shipper. (not the recipient). The shipper (sender) would need to call UPS with their account number and tracking number to be redirected.


If the delivery address is inaccessible (e.g., an office is closed), the package(s) will be brought back to the local FedEx hub. FedEx is unable to redirect packages to another location. FedEx will attempt to call the recipient to arrange a scheduled delivery if they have the recipient’s phone number. To facilitate FedEx’s attempt to schedule a delivery, the sender of each package must include the recipient’s phone number on the shipment label.

TIP: If you are requesting a delivery, please work with the shipper (sender) to make sure your phone number is included on the shipping label.

Making a Request or Obtaining More Information

If you would like to make arrangements for a specific delivery or need further information, please contact Rebecca at Campus Mail Services 541-346-3130 or send an email to

Power Outage 2020 Update

Dear UO campus community,

We are writing to inform you and help you plan for upcoming planned power outages scheduled to take place across campus on Monday, June 1, and Tuesday, June 2.

These include:

  • Short, staggered outages during scheduled times starting at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, June 1, and lasting throughout the morning and early afternoon. Affected buildings are listed here.
  • A campus-wide shutdown at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 2, will result in a brief loss of power to all buildings on campus.

This is the same project originally slated to take place during spring break, but that has been rescheduled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Both the impacted buildings and the outage schedule remain the same as the original project.

While we recognize that most of you are not on campus at present, it is important for you to consider how these outages might affect your equipment and your operations and to plan accordingly. For some, this may mean powering down equipment in advance of scheduled outages or taking additional steps.

If you would like assistance in planning for the outage, you may submit this survey to request help. The survey can be used to seek assistance in powering down and/or rebooting equipment on campus, including desktop computers.

The university does not expect major disruptions to its wired or wireless network on campus, or its core IT services such as email, Canvas, Zoom, DuckWeb, Banner, or Office 365 during this project.

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the detailed timeline for these scheduled outages, which are posted on the June power outage webpage hosted by Campus Planning and Facilities Management. If you would like assistance in assessing potential impacts and planning for the outage, you may submit this survey to request help.

Additionally, we anticipate that on-campus operations will still be suspended at the start of June and building access will be limited. Individuals returning to campus to make preparations for the outages need to submit the appropriate access request forms.

We appreciate your flexibility and thank you for support in completing this critical utility maintenance.

Updates will be posted on the June power outage webpage and shared on Around the O.

For additional questions about the outages, please contact work control at or 541-346-2319.

Update: 13th Ave Repaving Week of 5/18

Update 6/5/2020: Bike markings install along 13th Avenue from Agate St to University St have been rescheduled to the week of 6/15 and is dependent on weather.  During install the street will remain open but with some minor disruption.  All other project related work is complete.

Update 5/21/2020: The repaving of 13th Ave has been completed and the street is reopened for traffic.  Due to the need for dry weather the paint striping work has been postponed to this Saturday, 5/23.  Western Asphalt Maintenance will perform this work.  The City of Eugene will perform their striping work on Tuesday/Wednesday, 5/26-27.   Another contractor, JBL, plans to install the thermoplastic bike markings the week of June 1st.  Campus users can expect minor disruptions to traffic and some parking restrictions in order to conduct this work. All this work is weather dependent and the schedule may change.  The contractors will keep the project manager updated if anything changes.


UPDATE 5/14/20:

For the finalized schedule, Wildish Construction will perform the cold plane mill on Tuesday (May 19th) and pave on Wednesday (May 20th). During this time, they will keep one lane open with limited, restricted access, and flaggers. Paint striping/bike street markings will happen afterward on Thursday (May 21st). This portion of work is being contracted separately by UO’s Transportation Services and Design and Construction.  All work is weather dependent.  The contractor will keep the project manager updated if anything changes.


Project Timeline: Week of  May 18, 2020

Building(s) or Area(s) Impacted:  13th Avenue from Agate Street to approximately 200 yards east of University Street.

Details: CPFM Design & Construction is tentatively planning the repaving of 13th Avenue from Agate Street to approximately 200 yards east of University Street. The project involves a partial asphalt mill and overlay to smooth out the street surface. Construction is tentatively planned for the week of May 18th. During this time, the street will remain open but be restricted to limited local traffic, some deliveries, and emergency vehicles.

It is advised that users seek alternative parking and routes, or limit vehicle access to buildings around the project during construction. Campus users can expect to see and hear heavy equipment, trucks, construction workers, possible jack-hammering, and the smell of hot asphalt.

Contact: If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Theo Davis, CPFM Project Manager, 541-346-1012

Closure of Riverfront Parkway underpass to Railroad

UPDATE 6/29/20: This work has been extended through the end of September.

Within the next few days, we will start to close off the extension of Riverfront Parkway that connects to the underpass under the railroad tracks. This is being shut down completely in association with the construction of the parking garage. As rework to the roadway, as well as large trucks accessing the site loaded with huge pieces of pre-cast concrete will make that extension an unsafe location for pedestrians, bikes and vehicles.

Access to the area of campus north of the railroad will need to occur through either the Garden Way underpass, or the access near the old EWEB heat plant.

Simon Ditton confirmed with the fire department that they would be able to access the north property through the EWEB route.

We will be installing detour signage on the construction fence that is being installed around the perimeter of the area, guiding people to the Garden Way Underpass.

This will remain closed until the garage work is complete, which will likely be near the end of June.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Director, Design & Construction
