Library Renovations Schedule Changes

Asbestos abatement work taking place in the Library north second floor area is taking a bit longer than originally scheduled. Please note the following adjustments to the previously announced schedule: restrooms 2446 and 2448, the associated corridor outside of the men's and women's restroom and classroom 2449 will be inaccessible beginning Monday October 27. In addition the second floor will not be accessible via elevator 11. Elevator 11 will service all other floors. This particular phase of the project is due to be complete Friday, November 7. The start of this phase is pending completion and final air testing of the ongoing asbestos abatement underway outside elevators 24 & 25. We expect these tests to be complete Friday, October 24. This new work area/phase will not be established until the elevator access to the 2nd floor via Elevator 24 & 25 is available. The main corridor (2400), outside Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies and Writing Initiative, will remain open to any remaining occupants of the 2nd floor. Stair 14 will also remain open. Elevator 24 & 25 will be able to be used (upon completion of testing). Bathroom facilities located near the tower and/or on the 1st floor near Stair 10 and Stair 13 can be used during this time.
