Campus Project Summary

Here’s a brief rundown on what’s happening as of October 2017:

  • The majority of the electrical work to relocate wiring from overhead to underground has been completed. 
  • Construction for the new engineering building is underway. The fencing has been expanded to Washington Street and partially in St. Peter Street, leaving it a one way (North Bound) street. Take a peek over the fence and see what's really happening with the new engineering building.
  • The southern portion of Doc Blanchard will open mid-October for the Rudder Way dedication and statue unveiling.
  • Moody Hall is currently undergoing renovations to become the new offices for ITS. Construction is slated to be complete by December 2017.
  • Construction continues on a major infrastructure improvement at the center of campus. The project will expand pedestrian walkways along several campus core streets. Utility improvements will eliminate flooding issues and enhance lighting. There will be some alternative pedestrian routes and temporary traffic changes as we work to complete this project. View the current routes. Scheduled for completion in December 2017. View information about the Utility and Infrastructure project.
    • Landscaping and lighting along Vanderbilt between the Dining Hall and east of Lillian are nearly complete, phase 2 of the Pedestrian Mall is expected to be opened in July.
    • Lillian will be closed from Washington to Jones as progress continues throughout the campus.
    • The renaming of Lillian to Rudder Way and the unveiling of the Rudder statue is scheduled with the Board of Regents for October 19th, 2017. Save the date for this momentous occasion.
  • Groundbreaking for renovations to Memorial Stadium took place in September. The $24 million project will expand seating to 9,400 and convert the west-side stands for home fans. Anticipated completion for this project is August 2018. View more information about plans for the future stadium project.
