Underground cabling installation to begin on campus Wednesday, July 20

As a continuation of the IT Infrastructure Project, which installed underground conduits on campus in late spring and early summer, crews will now begin pulling fiber optic and copper communications cabling through the underground pathways. They will begin at Segment One between New Chemistry and Garland Hall along Bowman Drive behind Levering Hall. The number of vehicles and trucks involved will be smaller than during the drilling operations. Crews will provide flagmen and directions around work zones for vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

The final portion of excavation will be completed this week at the east side of Garland Hall, allowing cabling to be pulled at Segments Two (Garland to Latrobe Tunnel) and Three (Barton to Shriver and Croft) in the next two weeks. Some minor interior conduit installation will take place in the basement levels of Croft and Shriver halls as well. The project should be completed by mid-August.
