Rerouting electrical, fire alarm systems at Town Hall complex

February 14, 2020

Dear Kresge Community Members,

I hope your midterms have gone well. I wish you a restful three-day weekend. 

This is the latest update on the Kresge Renewal Project.

Construction Updates, Activities and Impacts:
(Dates and plans are fluid and they may change)

February 18 - You will see an increase in people walking the Kresge Site on that day. We are in the bid process for the Final Phase of the project and a number of sub-contractors will be on-site getting information in preparation to submit their bids for working on the project. Swinerton staff will be out helping direct traffic and getting the sub-contractors parked so that there is minimal traffic congestion.

Porter/Kresge Road – Safety Concerns: We still have some bicyclists using the Porter/Kresge Road from Kresge lot 145 to Heller Drive. Please stay off this road. The road is closed to all non-authorized traffic 24/7.

Water main along the Porter/Kresge Road is scheduled to be completed by the end of next week.

Shoring – Shoring systems for the project will be constructed for the next three weeks.

Town Hall Complex – Abatement of the Town Hall Complex is now completed. The next phase of work includes rerouting electrical and fire alarm systems in preparation of the demolition phase of the complex.
