Pecan Street Overhead and Storm Line Project – Starting Phase One

Phase one will require closing 30 of the 127 spaces in the LCN lot.  With the completion of the SEC Utility project the 24 spaces behind Lipscomb are now useable for  students.  We will also be installing temporary signage blocking of a row for Residence hall parking in lot 45 (south side of Lipscomb) during this phase of the project.

All building entrances will remain open during the project.   The scope of this phase will include installation of the communications duct bank in front of the building and the storm water line from the back of the building to Pecan Street.

The tree debris removal on campus will continue this week. The outlying areas, such as parking lots , still have debris to be removed and we have begun that process. After the debris has been picked up Grounds will concentrate on the broken limbs still in trees and cleaning up the limbs that were broken in the storm.

The  cleanup is completed.


Meadow Run

We are continuing with repairs, most units are completed and residents are back to normal. Several guest housing units are nearing completion so these units may be used for UT Arlington Departments. There was a minor setback in two of the units during repair. A sprinkler line was hit and minor damage to ceilings and walls slowed the renovation process. We are still working to be completely finished with all units by February 12th. There may be a couple that need final clean up or flooring installed the week of February 15th.
