Beginning Monday, April 22, 2013, some of the first steps in the construction of the New Comprehensive Cancer Project will have a visual appearance on campus. Site investigation of existing underground utilities will cause minor interruptions of vehicle and pedestrian traffic along Dewey Avenue and 45th Street (Durham Research Plaza). This work will cause one lane of those streets to be closed for a few weeks at a time (see poster below). All work should be completed before June 1, 2013, approximately.
Look for future notices concerning construction activities that will affect the campus as the construction work proceeds.
Please observe any temporary barricades and safety fences.
