A portable boiler will be placed near the Washakie Dining Hall during the week of July 9 and remain on-site until Aug. 20.
Campus Irrigation (UW Operations) -- Crews will begin turning on irrigation systems throughout campus. Use caution, as some sidewalks could become slick. Please excuse the inconvenience of detours walking around campus.

Lot Maintenance (UW Operations, Structural Trades) -- Weather permitting, summer lot maintenance work will run through August. UW shops will stripe lots and curbs, and replace signs as needed across campus. Sections of the lots may be barricaded during the day as needed for safety. Work will be finished for the Express Lot early the week of June 18 and then will start in the Sigma Phi Epsilon spaces on King Street. Please be cautious of crews and equipment in the area.
