Improved service road for Dalton, Haenicke, Wood

July 5, 2006

KALAMAZOO--Construction begins Monday, July 10, and will conclude by the end of August on a new service access road serving the loading docks for the Dalton Center and Haenicke and Wood halls at Western Michigan University.

The only inconvenience to the general campus community will be limited disruption of pedestrian traffic in the affected area. The road is used exclusively by service vehicles, and the construction will not hinder access to main campus roads or parking areas.

Construction will extend the service road that runs from Knollwood Avenue at the Trimpe Building to Faunce Student Services Building. The road will extend behind Faunce and in front of Kohrman Hall to the circle drive that serves Dalton, Haenicke and Wood. The project will upgrade the current "sidewalk" drive access to those three buildings.

Phase I of the construction begins July 10 and will not result in reduced service access to the affected buildings. Phase II, which involves the section of road between Faunce and Kohrman, will begin on July 31 and conclude by the start of fall semester. During phase II, there will be no service access to the loading docks at Dalton, Haenicke and Wood.

WMU faculty and staff in Dalton, Haenicke and Wood with questions about deliveries and other truck access to those buildings should contact their building coordinator.

More information about this and other campus construction projects is available on the Campus Facilities Web pages at www.cf.wmich.edu.
