Whiting-Turner will be mobilizing on site on Thursday, Oct. 22, to begin construction of the temporary structure on the Freshman Quad. They will begin with installing the temporary tree protection for the Freshman Quad construction site. The fencing is represented by the red line on the map on the Facilities and Real Estate website.
The contractor will have flaggers on site to redirect pedestrian traffic as required. Once installed, the tree protection will not affect pedestrian traffic around the quad. However, the pathways through the quad will be closed and appropriate signage will be installed, as shown on the map. The site work will follow and the temporary structure will be installed and completed by mid-January. During this time we will have materials delivered to the site. Whiting-Turner will use flaggers as required to maintain the safety of pedestrians.
