Reconstruction project to begin on west quad

Author: Julie Hail Flory


A campus improvement project to reconstruct the sidewalks, service drives and landscaping in the southwest part of the University of Notre Dame campus will begin on Monday (June 9).

The area involved is located south of Alumni, Dillon, Fisher, Pangborn and South Dining Hall and north of McGlinn, ONeill, Keough and Welsh Halls and the Morris Inn.Construction work is expected to be completed in early August to be followed by landscaping.

The project encompasses the removal of the existing concrete throughway and its network of sidewalks that currently provide vehicular and pedestrian access to these facilities.It will be replaced by a series of smaller driveways and walkways in order to increase the pedestrian nature of this part of campus while maintaining essential service and parking access.The area will be planted with many new trees and shrubs while also creating additional open green space.

Pedestrian and vehicle access to these buildings and parking lots in this area will be maintained during most of the construction period.Periodic isolated closures will be scheduled and coordinated with Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP), Food Services and the Office of Residence Life and Housing.Faculty and staff assigned to park in these areas will be notified by NDSP of specific schedule details that may temporarily require them to park in alternative spaces for short durations.

Ushers from the NDSP staff will be stationed on site during the project to assist and guide students, visitors and staff around the construction site.Please direct any inquires regarding this project to the Office of the University Architect at 574-631-4200 or .
