10.3.17 Campus Update

Good afternoon.

Construction work on part of the new housing project will begin on Friday, October 6th.  Previously, we communicated that both pile driving and shoring will be done during construction-however, a new alternative method will be used.  This method will involve building a retaining wall using precast, interlocking concrete retaining blocks.  Construction will last from Friday, Oct 6 - Friday October 20 (weather permitting).

Construction work will take place between 7:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.- noise will be minimal.

All parking and sidewalk use on the south side of University Heights between Brown Hall and Mullen Park (near the crosswalk to Rhoades/Robinson) will be closed.  Traffic on University Heights will not be impacted by the construction & parking closure.

If you have questions regarding construction, please email campusconstruction@unca.edu or contact Campus Operations at 828.251.6564.  For updates and more details, visit https://facilities.unca.edu/construction
