​Construction Alerts for Campus Community



On Friday, August 22nd and Saturday August 23rd, paving work will take place on the road around Harkins Circle and Harkins Drive.  In order to facilitate this work, there will be NO PARKING around Harkins Hall, with the exception of the Handicapped Spaces closest to the Priory parking lot.
Visitor parking on Harkins Drive will be available on Friday only.
Also on Saturday, there will be paving work being done behind the Ruane Center and the St. Martin Hall parking lot parallel to Eaton St.
Parking is available in those areas on Friday. 
If you are entering campus from the River Avenue/Phelan main gate on either day, security officer’s stationed at strategic locations will assist and direct you as to where to park as available parking may vary during the course of the work.
Please note that paving work will also be taking place at various times within the next week on the main road form the Huxley Gate to Cemetery Lane.  Once again, you are urged to take the necessary direction from Security  personnel on location.

Walkways behind Harkins Hall


Construction is scheduled to start on the walkways behind Harkins Hall around the Veritas Plaza. Fencing will be installed to protect the work site. The roadway around Harkins Hall will be open throughout this project, but please use the walkways by the Harkins Hall garage (to Slavin) and the walkway to  Ruane Center to access Harkins Hall.  Construction on this site is expected to be completed by approximately mid-August.
July 1, 2014 - Notices to Campus
Electricity Curtailment Request
The College has been notified by ISO- New England that we have the potential for a “peak” energy event tomorrow, Wednesday July 2nd.  This is the highest demand this year to date and the highest of this week.  With temperatures predicted to be in the low 90’s and very humid, Wednesday can likely turn out to be the Annual System Peak.  The peak often occurs after several days of hot and humid weather or on the last day of the stretch.  As is the case this week, the temperature and humidity have been building with Wednesday predicted to have the highest humidity and nearly as hot as today.
Since curtailment capacity is a portion of our overall wholesale energy costs, any efforts we make during these curtailment events will have an impact on our utility charges for a whole year.  Accordingly, if you have the ability, please curtail your electricity use on campus on Wednesday afternoon between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. This would include shutting off computers and individual A/C units and fans.  Please do what you can to help!
This is short time period and most of the campus operations will be in a reduced mode due to the time of day.


Phase I Huxley Field Project. - ELECTRICAL SERVICES INTERRUPTED beginning July 5 at 6:00 a.m. - July 6.  Power restored for Monday, July 7.
As we close in on completion of the first of three phases for this project the following electrical services will be interrupted for the final changeover of feeders. Beginning 6:00 am on July 5, the main 23kv feeder serving the Power Plant, Schneider, Parking Garage, Peterson, Alumni, Slavin, and Concannon will be taken off line. The power will remain off line no longer than two days, July 5 and 6 for completion of the changeover. Monday morning all power will be back to normal.
During this outage, the chillers at the Power Plant will be off line as well as the chillers at Schneider. We will be providing a portable generator for Schneider Arena to serve the chillers and maintain ice during the outage. We will also be providing a generator at the Power Plant to serve one of the 1000 ton chillers to supply cooling to a few essential buildings on west campus. All cooling will be back to normal Monday morning.
