Construction update: Fairhaven stormwater drainage

The Fairhaven courtyard and main sidewalk from South College Drive remain closed while work continues to improve the storm drainage system around Fairhaven College. The adjacent parking lots are also closed. For the safety of all, please do not enter any fenced areas.

Installation of new pavers begins on Tuesday. The contractor will be working around the courtyard entry doors at Stacks 4-12 to place grates and concrete. The doors may be propped open periodically; please stay clear of the work areas to avoid impacting progress. A delay in material delivery caused a slight schedule adjustment; substantial completion has been extended to occur on or before September 9.
