Work Begins on Plaza Between Morey and Lattimore Halls
Work begins this week on the construction of a plaza between Morey and Lattimore Halls on the River Campus. This plaza will require removal of the existing sidewalk in front of the Eastman Kodak Colonnade, excavation for foundations, installation of seat walls, and installation of new paving materials. Pedestrian traffic will be routed to the sidewalk in front of Bausch & Lomb and Dewey Halls. Work on the project will continue through early October.
