Atlantic Drive Undergoes Utility Repairs and Hardscape Improvements

Atlantic Promenade South will undergo construction to replace aged steam lines followed by upgrades to adjacent hardscape and landscape. The repairs require significant digging, which provides an opportunity to enhance the pedestrian experience through the primary north/south corridor of campus on Atlantic Drive. The project will create a connected, walkable corridor envisioned in the campus master plan and landscape master plan. This will provide for a safer campus by providing better lighting, eliminating trip hazards and improving accessibility within the area.

  • New walkway
