So, what's with all the noise, fences, and construction equipment on Via
Palou and Via Pueblo?
What we are experiencing is the facilities upgrade for the new Science
and Engineering Quad 2 (SEQ2). Commencing in May of 2006, four new SoE
buildings will be constructed, over an eight year period, in the space
currently occupied by Ginzton Lab, HEPL, Gravity Probe B and the A and C
permit parking lot at Via Ortega and Panama St. New utility conduit runs
are being placed along Via Palou, Via Pueblo, and Via Ortega. Storm
drains are being upgraded. The work in front of CIS/CISX should be
complete in two months. The hackberry trees have been temporarily moved
and will replanted back along Via Palou when construction is finished.
Via Pueblo and Via Ortega will soon be closed for construction. The work
schedule is being revised due to material and labor issues resulting
from the recent hurricanes in the gulf coast.
