Electrical repairs related to the power outage affecting portions of the Hattiesburg campus are underway by the Physical Plant. The facilities listed below will be without power through the duration of the repair process. Barring any unforeseen problems, the repairs are expected to be completed by Noon on Saturday, June 5.
The following facilities are currently without power:
Demolition of the Printing Center will begin the week of May 10, as part of the Montague Roadway Extension project. Please be observant of heavy equipment in the area and obey all directional signage. For the safety of all, please stay outside of the boundaries of the construction fence. When finished, the roadway will feature a single-lane extension that will run one-way, from east to west, behind the Power House Restaurant, linking Forrest Avenue to Montague Boulevard. The project will also include the addition of sidewalks and metered parking spaces. The project is now scheduled to be completed in Summer of 2021, weather dependent.
The east entrance of the R.C. Cook Union will close on Monday, May 10. The project will include replacement of the roof, fascia and signage, and this phase will last approximately 14 - 21 days. Once the east side has been completed, the work will move to the west entrance. Please be observant of heavy equipment in the area and stay outside of the boundary of the construction fence.
Construction of the Montague Boulevard Pedestrian Pathway is underway. The pathway will run along the north side of Montague, from 38th Avenue to Ross Boulevard. Please be observant of heavy equipment in this area and stay outside of any construction boundaries. The project is scheduled to be completed in October 2021, weather dependent.
Construction of a North Campus Gateway is underway. Located at the corner of West Fourth Street and North 34th Avenue, the gateway was designed to resemble the Centennial Gateway at the Hardy Street entrance of the Hattiesburg campus. A section on North 34th Avenue and one lane of West Fourth Street will be closed periodically until the project is completed in the Fall of 2021.
