Update: Alumni Drive Closure Extended to 6/30, Impact to East Campus Cooling

The current closure of Alumni Drive has been extended to 6/30.

Last week crews began excavations to replace corroded storm drain pipe.

During much of this time cooling to Engineering, NSB, SSB, Library, Admin, and Arts will be offline. These buildings are cooled with ground water pumped via wells. The discharge from these wells flows into the storm drains and is currently flooding the trench in East Campus Central Lot

In late 2014, the Neeser Construction to installed a temporary roadway for use by the University, local residents, the Anchorage School District, and the public. This closure will allow the contractor to construct the permanent roadway.
