These are among the construction activities scheduled Oct. 15-21 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.
Campus Roof Replacements (Big Horn Roofing, Laramie; November 2017) -- Roof replacements are being finished at the Arena-Auditorium, weather permitting. Please use caution around work areas.
553 N. Ninth St. (UW Operations; Oct. 30) -- Sidewalk is being replaced on the west and south sides of the property. Sidewalks will be closed temporarily. Please use caution in the area.
Fraternity Row East (The Plumbing Co., Laramie; October 2017) -- Water line work has begun. Fraternity Row may be blocked off occasionally near the Beta House. Please be cautious of crews and equipment in the area.
Central Energy Plant (Arcon Inc., Laramie; October 2017) -- Construction fence is set up around the work area. The sidewalk on the west side of 19th Street is closed, and 19th Street will be blocked occasionally. Please be cautious of crews and equipment in the area.
Agriculture C and Engineering Addition Buildings (Summit Sealants, Montrose, Colo.; July 2018) -- Painting, caulking and minor repairs to the exteriors of Agriculture C and Engineering are ongoing. The Agriculture C west-end double-door entrance has scaffolding. Pedestrian traffic is routed through a scaffold passage tunnel to protect pedestrians from drop hazards from work occurring above. Please use caution around crews.
Cheyenne Family Medicine (Simon Contractors, Cheyenne; November 2017) -- Reconstruction of the north parking lot is ongoing. Work will require partial closure of the lot. Please use caution around work crews.
Wildcatter Suites Filter Upgrades (Mullen’s Heating, Laramie) -- Filter upgrades will be conducted in the main air-handling unit that serves the Wildcatter Suites Oct. 16-17 and Oct. 19. The unit will be shut down for several hours during the day. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but this will help us in terms of energy efficiency and better air filtration in the building.
Earth Sciences Building Filter Upgrades (Mullen’s Heating, Laramie) -- Filter upgrades will be conducted in the main air-handling unit in the basement of Earth Sciences Oct. 31-Nov. 3. The unit will be shut down for several hours during the day. The exhaust fan will run, but we request that researchers not use the hoods because the supply air will be shut off and the make-up air will then have to come from corridors and/or exterior doors. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but this will help us in terms of energy efficiency and better air filtration in the building.
Wyoming State Vet Lab Renovations (BSL-3) (General contractor Sampson Construction, Cheyenne; October 2017) -- Punch-list and commissioning activities are ongoing. Be cautious around heavy equipment.
