Listed below is brief summary of activities.

•In front of Lipscomb Hall the contractor will be boring across Pecan to the UTA communications duct bank on the west side of the street at 4th Street.
•UTA’s Plumbing Shop will be completing the gas line installation across the front of the lawn of Lipscomb, once this is completed the sidewalk will be replaced restoring the appearance of this area.

We are currently working with the Bookstore Management to finalize the parking lot crossing, currently it appears that this will occur the first week of June.

Parking Lot 40 and the Arlington Hall lot will be used for student orientation and events at the University Center. All students and visitors should use the Center Street entrance into these lots, new signage is going up to assist with directions to this entrance next week.

***Access to Arlington Hall Lot will be off of Center Street until this lot closes in August 2011 for the next phase of construction.
