Demolition Work to Start Next Week at Central Campus

As part of the large-scale project to construct a new library and student life center on Central ConstructionCampus, demolition work will begin along Pease Lane on Monday, Oct. 15.

The Visual Arts and Ceramics annexes, attached to the rear of Central High, will be torn down. The work area will be fenced off on or near Oct. 15. The fenced off area will include some parking spaces adjacent to the Visual Arts and Ceramics annexes, plus some ramps and stairs to Pease Lane.

The Pease Lane sidewalk that runs next to Central High will be closed; however, the sidewalk on the other side of Pease Lane will remain open. Pease Lane itself will remain open most of the time during the demolition work. It will close for temporary periods to allow large trucks to haul away demolition debris. Facilities Services will try to give the campus community advanced notice of when Pease Lane will be closed.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as the college moves forward with this exciting and important construction project.
