Safety First! Spring Break Shutdown

     Facilities Maintenance will be conducting several routine repairs and will have extensive work on current construction projects during Spring Break.
      The Spring Break Shutdown will impact traffic, electric, hot water, and residential facilities. We appreciate your patience and want to communicate our plan so that if you have questions they may be answered.

Friday, March 18:
  •   Earle Clements Drive will be shut down at 3 p.m.  in order to  excavate and install the sanitary sewer lines needed for the Parking- Dining Facility.
  •  The Recreation and Wellness Center will be closed at 2 p.m. to accommodate this project.
  •  Alumni Tower and Eagle Lake Apartments will also close at 3 p.m. Housing has already notified residents and worked diligently to make plans should anyone be impacted.
  •  Beginning Thursday, March 10 until Friday, April 1, a crane and precast concrete panels will be delivered and assembled. That directly conflicts with the sewer installation, which is why we pursued the early closure of those facilities and roadway.
  • Traffic concerns regarding the delivery of precast concrete are being handled with coordination between MSUPD and Wehr Constructors to provide traffic management, if needed. Please note that traffic will be slowed, stopped, and directed at this time.
  •  The sanitary sewer line work will end on Monday, March 21.
  • There will be a pedestrian route but it will not be handicap accessible. 

Saturday, March 19:
  • The west end of campus will have a scheduled power outage in order to make routine repairs.
  •  This is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Buildings impacted include; Reed Hall, Lloyd Cassity, Breckinridge Hall, Mignon Hall, West Mignon, Mignon Tower, Allie Young Hall, Ginger Hall, Rader Hall, Thompson Hall, the President’s Home, Claypool-Young, Howell McDowell, Lappin Hall, ADUC, Button Auditorium, Combs, Fields Hall, the Camden-Carroll Library.
  • Specific departments impacted have been contacted to prepare in advance for the electrical outage and those that need them, have generators.

Sunday, March 20 – Saturday, March 26:
  • Steam will be shut down campus wide.
  • There will be no hot water in any building.
  • This will begin at 7 p.m. on March 20 and end at 11 a.m on March 26.

Monday, March 21 – Friday, March 25:
  • Power will be shut off to Alumni Tower, the Recreation and Wellness Center, and Eagle Lake Apartments. 
  • This will begin at noon on Monday and end at noon on Friday.
  •  Housing has provided alternate accommodations to residents that are impacted.
  • This shut off is to switch to a new transformer and add electrical lines for the new Residence Hall.

Wednesday, March 23:
  •  Water will be turned off in ADUC from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for routine repairs.

The Office of Facilities Management greatly appreciates the patience and cooperation of everyone as we continue to make campus the best it can be.
