Bennett/Wittson Hall – Access to the north Bennett and south Wittson facing entrances temporally closed

Due to weather conditions, we have moved the construction work to this Saturday, October 21, 2017, at 7:30am.

Glass will be removed and replaced on the 4th floor skywalk between Bennett and Wittson Halls. Scaffolding is currently up and will remain in place until the end of the glass installation – estimated to remain until 5:00pm Saturday, October 21.

 During the installation of the glass and in the interest of safety, access to the north Bennett and south Wittson facing entrances pedestrian traffic will be limited.  (See photo for location.) Anyone walking near the construction site area should use caution and observe the barricades and warning signs.

The south entrance of Bennett Hall (Emile Street side) and the east entrance of Wittson Hall (42nd Street side) will remain accessible.
