Sidewalk near Mid-Campus Drive, south exit of parking lot B13 to close Feb. 5
Beginning Monday, Feb. 5, the south exit out of parking lot B13, behind Umberger Hall, and the sidewalk northeast of the four-way stop at Mid-Campus Drive and Claflin Road will be closed. The closures are to protect pedestrians while areas are being excavated to install new electrical components to Umberger.
Work is expected to be complete and reopen for normal traffic Monday, Feb. 26, weather permitting.
The construction is part of the Division of Facilities' campus infrastructure improvements. These improvements are planned to eliminate K-State's aging electrical power grid and outdated electrical equipment installed in the 1950s and 1960s. This new electrical system will be a more reliable electrical power source to feed campus buildings. Overall this infrastructure work will take approximately two years to complete and will affect 18 buildings.
