Chiller construction project at Claxton Jan 30-Mar 15 rev 2-8-17

Starting Monday January 30, the cooling system at Claxton will begin maintenance on the cooling system and new materials installed. This project is expected to last until March 15.

This will impact staff who park in S9 Margaret Alley.  The construction company will need a number spaces to set up materials and a trailer. Maintenance staff from the Parking & Transit department will monitor the project to minimize the number of spaces needed to complete this work.

Like the Chiller project at Hodges in January, there will be an extremely large crane on campus to lift the materials. That crane is scheduled to go up on Feb 13 (NOW Feb 17) and come down on Feb 27. On those mornings only, Margaret Alley is planned to be closed from 5 am to 9 am
