Stephenville Campus Construction Update - New and Continued Projects
Several new construction/renovation projects will commence over the holiday break while current project will continue.
Alumni Island - Alpha Building Corporation
On December 28th the first phase of improvements to Doc Blanchard Drive, Military Drive and the Alumni Island will begin. The improvements are based on the 2020 Master Plan and the plans for Permanent University Fund allocated to Tarleton by the Texas A&M University System in 2011. The first phase will convert the section of Doc Blanchard Drive between the Howell and Math Buildings into a pedestrian walkway. Later phases will include restoring the east gates, resurfacing Military Drive, and creating green space on Alumni Island. Extra care will be taken during the project to preserve the “3 Penny Triangle” and the “Horseshoe” on the Island. A new parking lot will be constructed on McIlhaney Street to offset any reduction in parking spaces.
Wells Fine Arts Center – Kiewit Building Group, Inc.
