News and Events

Campus Construction Update for June 28 - July 11

Half Acre Gymnasium Addition and Renovation (General contractor Groathouse Construction, Inc., Cody; Phase I east reconstruction/addition was substantially completed March 13, 2015; Phase II, historic west renovation, summer 2015).

Phase I of the Half Acre Recreation and Wellness Center opened on Monday, March 16. Punch-list tasks, building technology and transitional work toward Phase II renovation will continue post-occupancy.  Pedestrian access to the new south building entrance from Prexy's Pasture and from the east Wyoming Union parking lot has reopened. Please observe temporary barricades, cautionary signage or other posted instructions in areas where work will continue. 

The west historic entrance is closed for Phase II renovation. Additional construction and staging areas are being established.  Phase II deconstruction activities are complete, and renovation preparatory work is nearing completion on the first floor, including remedial structural and floor slab construction.  Renovation is underway throughout Phase II, including mechanical and electrical rough-in, running track structure and floor alterations, new pool plumbing and the new whirlpool feature is slated to begin in early July.  Completion of Phase II renovation is now scheduled for fall 2015. 

Construction and staging areas north, east and west of the existing building have been established and are closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic, except that which is construction related.  Pedestrian pathways north and south of Half Acre Gym remain open; however, the continuing construction activities in this vicinity will result in increased congestion.  Temporary traffic controls, barricades and signs will be established as needed by specific site activities.  Please observe all posted traffic control, construction signs and temporary flagging in the affected areas.
