Neilson Library Construction Update, September 20, 2018

The chilled water shutdown delayed due to unfavorable weather is now scheduled for this Saturday, Sunday and Monday, September 22 through 24. 

The chilled water mains passing through Neilson Library must be relocated at this time to continue work on the foundations for the new Library. The shutdown will cut off chilled water to buildings on the  distribution system above Neilson Library. It will not impact buildings on the distribution system below Neilson Library. 

The temperatures predicted  for the weekend look to be cool enough for HVAC systems to utilize natural outside temperatures to keep buildings comfortable. 

The following buildings will continue to operate with chilled water during the three days:

  • Athletics - Scott & Ainsworth
  • Health Center
  • Mendenhall Performing Arts Center
  • Ford Engineering
  • Science Center Complex - Bass, Burton, McConnell, Sabin Reed
  • Tyler Dining
  • College Club

The following buildings will not have chilled water distribution:

  • Seelye Hall
  • College Hall
  • Pierce Hall
  • Lilly Hall
  • Wright Hall
  • Brown Fine Arts Center and Museum
  • Hatfield Hall
  • Dewey House
  • Lyman Plant House
  • Chapin House & Dining
  • Campus Center
  • Cutter Ziskind Houses
  • 10 Prospect Street

Construction Vehicles on Seelye Drive, September 24-25

On Monday and Tuesday, September 24 and 25 there will be ten wheel dump trucks hauling earth both directions on Seelye Drive. The vehicles will enter and exit the campus from Elm Street near College Hall and enter and exit the project site at the intersection of Neilson and Seelye Drive near Washburn House. These are large vehicles that take  take up a good portion of the roadway. A spotter will accompany the vehicles on foot from Elm Street to the project site and back. Please use caution in this area next Monday and Tuesday and give these vehicles a wide berth. Restraints on the site early next week require this point of access for the vehicles. We will return to use of the Dickinson Lot entrance on Wednesday.
