These are among the construction activities scheduled Oct. 1-7 at the University of Wyoming:

Campus Irrigation Systems (UW Operations, Plumbing and Landscaping Shops) -- Winterizing the campus irrigation system will continue through Oct. 31. Please use caution, as sidewalks and drive areas could become slick or slippery when wet with the cooler temperatures. We appreciate your patience during this time.

Campuswide Fall Roof Cleaning (UW Equipment Shop, Flynn Brighton Co., Big Horn Roofing, Laramie; Dec. 1) -- A man lift will be used at various locations on campus buildings with gutters and downspouts to clean leaves and debris before winter. Work will affect parking and pedestrian sidewalks at several locations for short periods of time. Please be cautious to stay clear of equipment and safety barricades, and watch for cleaning crews’ activities.

Arena-Auditorium Addition and Renovations (General contractor Sletten Construction of Wyoming Inc., Cody; October 2017) -- Parking on the east side of the building will be blocked for the project duration. Access to the A-A is closed. Be cautious of equipment, vehicles and construction crews in the area.

Engineering Education and Research Building (EERB) (Construction manager GE Johnson Construction Wyoming LLC, Casper; spring 2019) -- Structural steel erection is complete, and miscellaneous detailing remains. Concrete on the metal deck and associated topping slabs will continue for the next few weeks. Concrete block is being placed to form the pilasters around the building. Exterior and interior metal stud framing is underway. Mechanical rough-in will start over the next month. Please steer clear of heavy equipment or delivery trucks parked on city streets.

Mick and Susie McMurry High Altitude Performance Center (Construction manager at risk GE Johnson Construction Wyoming LLC, Jackson; June 2018) -- Gates 6 and 8, and access across the north side of the field are open and fully restored. All other pedestrian access routes are indicated by traffic-control barricades and signs. Site flatwork and paving are in progress, and barricades will be in place for new concrete pours. Please use caution when near the project, and observe all construction signs.

AHC/Centennial Complex (Southeast Wyoming Insulation, Laramie; October 2017) -- Adding insulation to the main entrance east-side lobby soffit is tentatively planned Friday, Oct. 6. The work will reduce heat loss and protect fire sprinkler system piping from freezing during periods of below-zero weather. Spray foam lines will be routed from the outside elevator entrance and into the lobby by the sculpture court access door. Use caution around equipment, and be aware that a generator creating noise and exhaust will be staged near the elevator entry.
