Construction to impact sidewalks near Norlin: Find out where

Upgrades to the chilled water services to multiple buildings on Main Campus will create various sidewalk impacts during the fall 2022 semester. These impacts will occur in and near the Norlin Quadrangle as service is upgraded to buildings such as Hellems Arts and Sciences and Guggenheim Geography.

These service upgrades will increase efficiency and resiliency and add new cooling to multiple buildings on campus. Facilities Management will strive to minimize impacts to building access during this time and will provide wayfinding signage for alternative routes. FM is grateful to the campus community for its flexibility and understanding during this exciting project.

Initial sidewalk impacts include:

  • Norlin Quad sidewalk from Norlin Library west to University Theater
  • Sidewalk on the north side of Hellems
  • The courtyard between Lucile Berkeley Buchanan building and Hellems
  • The sidewalk on the north side of the Museum Collections building between the museum and the Economics building
