The final phase of the summer paving project kicks off on Wednesday, July 17, when the South Entrance to campus (access from May Street) will close temporarily while the south parking area (Lot D) is repaved and striped.
As part of summer campus improvements, new trees have been planted on the lawn in front of the Sullivan Academic Center, adding a little more greenery to campus and the view for our neighbors passing by on Chandler and May streets.
On Saturday, July 6th, 2019, at 11:00 PM, Dowden Lot (A) will be taken offline to all vehicles until late evening on Thursday, July 11th, 2019. All vehicles (employee, food service, student, guest, etc.) should park in the garage or lower campus lots during this time period.
The first stage of the WSU construction project has been completed. Many of the lower lots have been opened this week to accommodate parking needs.
Some access to inner campus sidewalks, roadways and parking areas has been reopened. Grounds crew are removing barriers throughout the day; both pedestrian and vehicle traffic can again reach parking lots F, G, H, and K. Access to these areas is available through the south entrance to campus.
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.
One of many construction projects underway at Worcester State this summer is the resurfacing of the roadways and parking lots across campus. In this time-lapse footage, a powerful Roadtec reclaimer grinds up the existing surface with ease ready for a fresh surface to be added in the coming weeks.
Have you noticed that our "WSU" letters are no longer visible from the roadway in front of Sullivan Academic Center? Don't worry! One of our most loved landscape features has been carefully moved to a new permanent home in front of the Administration building on the inner campus side. Our grounds crew spent two days removing, relocating, and replanting this iconic photo opportunity spot. [CLICK POST TITLE FOR PHOTOS]
Campus improvements have temporarily changed our parking and traffic patterns. Please use the South Entrance, park in the parking garage & use the route marked in red to access our Admissions Office!
All summer improvements are underway and on schedule. We are currently regrading the lawn in front of Sullivan, repaving parking lots & continuing with Coughlin Field upgrades. North & South entrances both remain open.
