Contact Work Control 346-2319 to report areas or buildings of special concern.
The cardboard service hauler is experiencing mechanical issues this week, and as a result, the campus is experiencing service interruptions.

- Remove all packing material and sort appropriately
- Flatten all corrugated cardboard boxes before placing in the collection dumpsters
- Contact Work Control 346-2319 to report any overflowing cardboard dumpsters
A second communication will be sent when regular cardboard service resumes.
In conjunction with the work being done at Bldg. 130 CPFM Warehouse restroom remodel, Delta Sand & Gravel is performing excavation in the breezeway today (1/29) which extends several feet into the asphalt roadway behind the building on the north side (see attached map). This necessitates the use of a back-hoe and dump trailer, which take up a good deal of the roadway and make it difficult to pass. Please use an alternate route to access the Mobile Equipment shop, gas pumps, and “north 40” area. This work should be concluded by 1:00p today (1/29). If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Design & Construction Project Manager, Tim Allenbaugh at 541-346-8214.

As part of the ongoing restroom renovation project, on Thursday, February 7th, from 8:00a-4:00p, the main domestic water line into the Building 130 CPFM Warehouse will be shut down in order to install new water lines under the concrete slab in the breezeway (H109 on the Campus Map, indicated in the red rectangle).

They will be using electric wet saws, rather than combustion saws, to reduce fumes. This activity will be rather noisy. Foam ear plugs will be available in the Design and Construction Kitchenette area, for anyone that needs them.
In addition, we will be ordering a water cooler service for fresh drinking water as plumbing gets shut off and rerouted during the course of the project. One cooler will be located in the breezeway break room, and another in the Design and Construction kitchenette (see red box on 2nd floor CPFM map). If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Design & Construction Project Manager, Tim Allenbaugh at 541-346-8214.

Temporary porta-potties will be provided on the east side of the building outside the main entrance to Design & Construction, between the Warehouse and the CPFM Admin Bldg 136 (see green area on attached satellite map).
The majority of the breezeway, from the rollup door on the north side to the stairs on the southwest wall (S201 on the Campus map), will be within the perimeter of the dust containment and safety barricade system. The breakroom, vending machines, and key-boxes will remain accessible for the duration of the project (See attached interior map, green indicates safe passage area, red indicates construction project area). A dumpster will also be placed outside the rollup door and will impact parking the immediate vicinity (see yellow area on the attached satellite map).
Users should expect typical construction noises and disruptions throughout the project. Notices of specific project updates and utility shutdowns will follow. They will include temporary interruptions of water and power to the building for limited duration.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact CPFM Design & Construction Project Manager, Tim Allenbaugh, at 541-346-8214
