Construction Work Impacting Sweeney Hall
Bissell Road closure: Bissell Road will be closed to through traffic from Osborn Drive to the entrances to Parking Lots 3 and 8 (south of Howe Hall and Hoover Hall) from June 12-June 26. Alternate route: Union Drive to Sheldon Ave. to Pammel Drive. Individuals currently parking in the open section of Lot 14 will still be able to do so. The CyRide stops in this area will be closed and buses will be re-routed (see story under “Chemical and Biological Engineering News” on this page). Sidewalk access will remain unchanged.
Student Innovation Center construction: Through early 2020 (tentatively) 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. Any dates displayed should be considered approximate and subject to change:
Sweeney Hall east entrance: The access ramp to the east entrance will be closed beginning June 16. Ramp access to Sweeney will be at the north entrance adjacent to the new loading dock (signs directing individuals to the north entrance will be posted). The entire east entrance to Sweeney Hall will close July 1 to allow construction of a new sidewalk/greenspace that will connect to the Student Innovation Center. The east entrance will re-open at a date to be determined.
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 and the adjacent entrance is now 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 Hall and the Nuclear Engineering Laboratory is complete, with cleanup work and other related projects ongoing. Crews are working to complete detachment of the north wing of Old Sweeney from Sweeney Hall; and to remove the former loading dock on the south side of Sweeney.
The Student Innovation Center is tentatively set to open in early 2020..
