Chiller project continues near Adams,
Swen Parson; part of parking lot closed

June 17, 2008

Construction crews will continue working to install chilled water lines beneath Normal Road this week, with work mostly in the area of Swen Parson Hall and Adams Hall. Work on the project will continue throughout the summer, and Normal Road is expected to remain closed until Aug. 1.

Parking Lot 10, and the northeast quadrant of Lot 5 (at the Campus Life Building), is closed for staging of materials for the project. To offset the loss of parking spaces in Lot 5, Campus Parking Services is allowing Blue Permit parking in Lot D (west of Neptune Hall) until Aug. 15. For more information, contact Campus Parking Services at (815) 753-1045.

Pedestrian crossings will be maintained throughout the project, though the location of crosswalks might change periodically.

Caution is urged when walking or driving around any of the construction work due to heavy equipment and truck traffic. Work is scheduled between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
