Phase I: May - November 2011

Rerouting Vehicular Traffic

In May 2011, the University installed new bollards and check-in points to re-route vehicular traffic. The innermost driving route (see Figure 2) is closed to regular traffic, while emergency and service vehicles will continue to have full campus access at all times. Drivers with special needs may use the free campus shuttle, or call public safety for transportation, to enter the vehicle-free campus core at any time. New features will be put in place to facilitate parking, including a vehicle turnaround in the Kennedy lot and digital signage denoting space availability for the SAC lot. The University will also add parking places on the east side of CEER.

Transforming Vasey Plaza

The first phase also included the transformation of Vasey Plaza. The plaza has been widened to allow ramps on both sides for different mobility needs, and new hardscaping will provide convenient access to Vasey Hall from all levels. The space is now become greener and encompasses an expanded outdoor dining and gathering area. Renovations to Sheehan and Sullivan residence were also completed.
