Central Piedmont Community College


[Cpcommunicator] ADVISORY: Elizabeth Ave. construction begins June 11

>From Facilities Services:


Work begins June 11 to bring the College's underground utilities for HVAC and voice/data across Elizabeth Avenue at two locations.  This project involves trenching, installing concrete ductbank underground, laying piping and conduit in the ductbank, backfilling the trenches, and repaving the sidewalk and roadway cuts.  


The first stage of this 6-week project involves the area between Student Parking Deck 1 and Taylor Hall and the area between the Belk and Van Every buildings.  Construction fencing will be erected on June 11 to enclose these areas for safety during construction.  Limited space on the first floor of Student Parking Deck 1 will be closed to pedestrians and parking.  This stage should be concluded in mid-July, weather permitting.  


The final stage begins June 25 and involves trenching approximately one story beneath Elizabeth Avenue in two locations.  The first location is near the crosswalk at Student Parking Deck 1.  The other location is near the walkway between Sloan Morgan and Overcash.  Elizabeth Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic from Pease Lane to Charlottetowne Avenue (formerly Independence Boulevard) during this work.  This part is scheduled to conclude before the start of Fall Semester 2007.


Sidewalks will be open on at least one side of Elizabeth Avenue throughout this project.  Signage will be posted to alert pedestrians of detours.  We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.
