Final exams are over, grades have been submitted, and Emory
is ready for yet another Commencement. It’s time for summer,
and that means calm and quiet on campus. Or does it? For Facilities
Management (FM), summer break presents a window of opportunity
to conduct maintenance projects that could significantly disrupt
the campus at other times of the year.
Indeed, because FM tries to cater to the study—and sleeping—habits
of the typical college student, many of the more involved or disruptive maintenance
and construction projects are reserved for breaks—winter, spring and summer.
This summer is no exception. Following are projects are slated for this summer’s
break, along with their anticipated work periods:
• Harris Hall parking lot resurfacing, May 17–24.
• Mizell Bridge resurfacing, May 17–24.
• Fraternity Row water main replacement, May 24–June 18 (no road closures).
• Dowman Drive water main replacement, June 21–July 9 (no road closures).
• B. Jones sidewalk replacement, July 9–28.
• Peavine Creek Drive water main replacement, July 9–23.
• Emory Clinic Building B fire lane improvements, May 29–June 20.
• P.E. Center east entrance resurfacing, July 20–24.
• Driveway between N. Decatur Building and Lowergate South resurfacing,
• Druid Hills High School parking lot improvements, May–August.
Special projects & expected
• Lullwater Bridge over South Peachtree Creek, fall 2004. A cable suspension
pedestrian bridge will be constructed over South Peachtree Creek linking the
Lullwater grounds to the creek’s north shore, connecting
the VA Medical Center with the University campus via walking trails.
• Peavine Creek Drive gate access, fall 2004. A controlled access gate has
been installed on Peavine Creek Drive to improve pedestrian safety and will
become operational when fall semester begins in August.
In addition to the above projects, there are many interior renovations and
mechanical equipment enhancements scheduled. For more project information,
