Construction Update: July 31, 2017

Burke Hall and the Denison Museum will remain open during normal hours throughout construction. Signage is in place to direct visitors to the College Street entrances. College Street will be open for Pelotonia and the sidewalk along the north side of West Broadway will remain closed.  Please use the walk on the south side of West Broadway. To enable the public to view the construction progress, a section of the fence screening along the southeast side of the construction fence has been removed.

A tower crane has been erected on site and will remain in place for five months.  When the crane is inactive, the arm of the crane is unrestricted and will act like a weathervane in the wind.  Please do not be alarmed if it moves and no one is on-site.

The renovation of Burke Hall’s Recital Hall and Instrument Rehearsal space is in process. We have commenced the finish work in both rooms and plan on being complete prior to classes commencing this fall.

All concrete basement walls will be complete the first week of August.  Construction will work its way towards College Street and advance vertically as the Stage House and Audience Chamber progress.  We anticipate heavy truck traffic on College Street throughout the next couple of weeks.

Our current work hours of 6:00 AM to 5:00 PM will continue through the end of this week.  On August 7, 2017, the project hours will be 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
