Construction Updates on Demolition of Terrell and Ceramics & Visual Arts Annexes, Pease Lane to Close Next Week

Beginning next week (Nov. 19), two new construction projects will begin at Central Campus, impacting access to Pease Lane:

Terrell Demolition

On Monday, Nov. 19, Pease Lane will close to vehicular traffic from Elizabeth Avenue and only be used for construction traffic. Here is what you need to know about this road closure and how it will impact you as a Central Piedmont student, employee or visitor:

  • Pease Lane will be opened as needed for events at Pease Auditorium.
  • Visitor and accessible parking on Pease Lane will not be available. To accommodate this change, visitor and accessible parking will be available in Parking Lot 5, located behind Central High. Access to this lot is available from Kings Drive. See the Central Campus Map.
  • The small parking lot on the side of Terrell will be closed.
  • The sidewalk along Pease Lane will remain open during construction.

Please note that some staff and faculty offices will remain in Terrell until the end of November. Employees can access Terrell from the Quad entrance.

In the space not being used in Terrell, the removal of furniture and equipment will begin. Once all staff, faculty, furniture and equipment have been removed from the building, the physical building demolition process will begin.

Ceramics and Visual Arts Annexes Demolition

In addition to the changes happening on the Quad, structural demolition of the Ceramics and Visual Arts Annexes, located behind Central High, will begin next week. Construction trucks will be on site, hauling debris such as walls, floors and roof materials from the buildings. Construction vehicles will use Pease Lane to access Sam Ryburn Walk.

Our apologies for the many disruptions taking place on campus; however, this is an exciting time at Central Piedmont as the college builds important new facilities to enhance student success!
