1/28/17: Notice of Crane Placement, Franklin Lane Closure and LISB 4th Floor Closure

Update: 1/19/17

We have determined that the structural elements of the building far exceed safety requirements for the load we are moving with the crane, so the 4th-floor closure is not required.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Campus Community,

Due to the installation of a replacement motor for the smoke evacuation system fan on Lewis Integrative Science Complex, the two north-eastbound lanes of Franklin will be temporarily closed on Saturday, January 28, 2017, from 7 am – 5 pm for crane staging and operation.  This closure will also affect the pedestrian path under the grand oaks, and the exit from the east fire stair‎ (except during emergency egress).  These areas will be monitored to prevent entrance into the work zone. Contractors will be on site providing traffic and pedestrian control.  The 4th floor east wing of Lewis Integrative Science Complex will be temporarily closed during the placement of the motor to ensure the safety of the campus community. As part of this work, it is necessary to test the smoke evacuation system which will cause windows and doors to automatically open. These will close when the testing is complete.

For questions regarding this project contact Bruce Budzik at 541-346-8834.
