July 17, 2017 Storm Sewer Line Update

  • Parking Lot 37 will open by end of today for use. There will still be construction traffic in the area, so please use caution.
  • The next phase of construction will be on the south side of Campus Center Building. The storm line location is under the existing sidewalk.
  1. The sidewalk will be removed and replaced as part of the project.
  2. There will be tree pruning to accommodate the large excavator required to place the line (8 ft. deep).
  3. The south entrance at CCB will be temporarily closed.
  • To remove spoils and deliver gravel fill will require construction traffic on Pedestrian Mall.
  • Construction in this area should be completed over the next 10 days.

July 14, 2017

Please be advised that the contractor is moving forward at a fast pace and continues to push toward Gilbreath Hall. Next week they will finish excavation in Lot 37 and move into the area between Campus Center Building and Carter Hall. Be careful!!!

  • The main sidewalk on the south side of Campus Center Building will be removed as the storm line will be under it. This requires the use of a large excavator and large dump trucks used to haul away debris.
  • Trucks will be bringing gravel up Pedestrian Mall and dumping on the pavement. This is to fill in the trench containing the pipe. The contractor will work to minimize traffic and gravel on Pedestrian Mall.
  • There will be traffic barricades at Carter Hall for a few days as they move across the parking for Carter. Carter will still have parking, but it will be just a bit congested to move in and out of the lot.
  • Lot 37 will be open with gravel in place until paving can be completed.

ETSU Students, Faculty, and Staff:

As of January 2016, we have entered Phase I of the construction process on the new football stadium.  This is an exciting time for our university; however, as with any construction, adjustments will be required.  We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we work to make this as seamless a process as possible.  In order to keep the entire ETSU community as well as campus visitors updated on campus construction, including parking and traffic changes, we are setting up a new informational website. 

Nancy Dishner Lane, which runs between the CPA and current parking lot 19, is now a two-way street and is no longer available for parking.  Some spaces in lot 19 have also been closed.  However, over 250 spaces are still available in lot 19 and will remain open until Phase II begins in March 2016.  During all phases of construction, ample spaces for student parking will remain available in lots 16, 21, and 22, which are all in the same general area.

Please continue to monitor the website for updated information on parking and traffic changes throughout the construction process.  Go Bucs!
