Hale Library foundation repairs

By Mark Loberg

Facilities contractors began work on the foundation repairs and waterproofing on the north and west side of the Hale Library on Monday, May 19.

Foot traffic will be detoured around the north sidewalk out into the Waters Quad while work progresses. Fire Lane access will still be from the east and south. There will be a 50 foot stretch of the west part of the east/west fire lane sidewalk on the north west corner that will be removed to allow for excavation. That portion of sidewalk will be replaced by July 1. The north/south sidewalk on the west side of the library will remain open with intermittent short duration re-routing. Completion is expected by Sept. 1. Lawn restoration work may continue after that date.
