Campus sidewalk repairs planned

Sections of sidewalk on upper and lower campus will be replaced between Aug. 11 and Aug. 23, weather permitting. On lower campus, the project will include repairs near Hibbard Hall, Schofield Hall, Zorn Arena, Campus School and Phillips Hall. Sidewalks near several upper-campus residence halls also will be repaired. Once new concrete has been placed, the affected areas will be blocked off with caution tape and barricades for five to seven days to allow for adequate cure time. Foot traffic will be permitted after 24 hours of cure time. Anyone with questions should contact Chris Hessel, Facilities Planning and Management, at 715-836-2518 or
