Construction Work Impacting Sweeney Hall
Parking Lot 14 closure/Sweeney main entrance closure: The south portion of Lot 14 on Bissell Road (in front of Sweeney and the Biorenewables Complex) is scheduled to be closed from May 8-June 9. This will allow bus stops in front of those two buildings to be temporarily moved for construction work related to the Student Innovation Center. The main (west) entrance of Sweeney may also be closed at some point during this time. If/when this occurs the two entrances at the northwest corner of Sweeney Hall should be used.
Student Innovation Center construction: From March, 2017 to early 2020 Sweeney Hall will be affected in various ways by demolition and construction plans for the new Student Innovation Center to be erected just south of Sweeney. Please take note of the following plans, which are approximate and subject to change:
The Sweeney Hall south entrance is closed, and will remain closed until construction of the Student Innovation Center is complete.
The new loading dock on the northwest corner of Sweeney is now constructed and open, and the adjoining entrance to Sweeney is also open. The south loading dock is now permanently closed and all equipment deliveries and pickups will be via the new loading dock.
Demolition of Old Sweeney is nearly complete. The connecting structure between Old Sweeney and Sweeney Hall will also be removed, date TBD.
Sweeney Hall east entrance: Temporary closure of this entrance is now tentatively set for July 1. It will close to allow construction of a new sidewalk/greenspace that will connect to the Student Innovation Center.
The Student Innovation Center is tentatively set to open in early 2020..
