Progress Update: On Track at the Halfway Point

Campus improvements are approaching the halfway point and progressing according to schedule. The 14-week project will bring close to $10 million in improvements to campus, a portion of which is state-funded.

The iconic WSU letters, a landscape feature that is seasonally decorated with lights, have been relocated from the lawn between May Street and the Sullivan Academic Center to the front of the Shaughnessy Administration Building. This move allows for grading, leveling and reseeding of the lawn which is scheduled to be completed by June 30, weather permitting.

The installation of HVAC units for the Ghosh Science and Technology Center is on schedule to be completed by June 30.

The replacement of interior flooring and exterior doors for the main entrance to the Learning Resource Center (LRC) is scheduled to be completed by June 30. Temporary access to the LRC continues to be available on the second level.

The reconstruction and repaving of interior roadways and parking lots is scheduled to be completed by June 30, including curb cuts, handicapped parking designations, and parking lot striping.

In Dowden Hall, elevator replacement is on schedule to be completed by August 14.

The refurbishment of the track and new turf for Coughlin Field is also on schedule to be completed by August 20. Field improvements include a new scoreboard, lighting, and a sound system.

From July 1 through August 20 there will be paving in the South Lot and upper Wasylean parking lot. These lots will be offline and campus guests will be directed to the parking garage.

This construction schedule is weather contingent and may be adjusted as necessary.
