As part of the Utilities Long Range Plan (ULRP), the Utilities Department is installing an underground utility infrastructure to the new East Plant. The work will be completed in phases to accommodate access to campus facilities. 

Phase I is now complete.

Phase II will begin this Wednesday, March 21, and continue through the middle of this summer. Work will include the following:

  • Closure of the section of Wilson Drive south of Douglas Road to Holy Cross Drive  
  • Access to the East Gate of campus will be from the south via Bulla Road. 
  • This phase is scheduled for completion by mid-July.

This complex project impacts chilled water mains, a steam tunnel, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, primary electric lines, primary electric duct, the geothermal well field at Ricci Fields, telecommunication lines, and road reconstruction.
