Construction Related Campus Closures

Sidewalks closed, parking limited | July 23, 2008

Prep work will begin on Tuesday, July 22 for the construction of the Hoff Academic Quad. The prep work will involve the closing of some sidewalks, roads, parking spaces and current entrances.

Construction fencing will be installed along the east side of Ledgewood between Dana and almost to Herald. The sidewalk on that side of Ledgewood will be closed temporarily. The sidewalk will reopen when crews are done removing the houses in that area. There will also be no parking on either side of Ledgewood. Ledgewood will remain open to traffic during the construction project.

The north sidewalk on Dana Avenue, as well as the north traffic lane, just east of Ledgewood will also be closed temporarily while crews remove the Cincinnati Bell Building. The sidewalk and traffic lane will reopen when the demolition and removal is complete. The street known as the Dana Connector, which runs from Dana north to Herald/Cleaney along the side of the old Cincinnati Bell building will be closed to through traffic. Construction vehicles, however, will be using this road. Construction trailers for Messer Construction are located behind the Cincinnati Bell building.

Construction is also set to begin on the new central utility plant which will be located on the southwest corner of Dana and Ledgewood. The parking lot currently located on that spot will be closed. Physical Plant vehicles will still be allowed to enter the area, however, there will be a new entrance to the lot for Physical Plant vehicles. The new entrance will be located just south of the current entrance. Parking will be available further south on Ledgewood just past the railroad tracks on the west side of the road for plant and construction parking. The G Lot on the east side of the road is available for general parking.
