December 3, 2018

The final nighttime concrete pour at the new Science Building’s construction site is set to begin 11:00 p.m. Wednesday, December 5, and will last about 6 hours. Crews have been instructed to use sound blankets to dampen the noise and to ensure that work lights are not pointed directly at the apartment buildings or residence halls. They also plan to position the pump truck to get its sound pointed away from living quarters.
