Campus construction continues

While California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) students returned home for the holidays, the campus received a bit of a face lift. Significant progress was made on the New Otter Student Union building and Academic III over the winter break, along with many other smaller projects that took place. Inter-Garrison Road, in the center of campus, was closed the majority of the break.

“We used this opportunity for an extension of utilities throughout the student union site and campus-wide,” said Matthew McCluney, CSUMB’s senior campus planner. “We took advantage of the break to close the road and work underneath. As of now, the road is back open and that work has been completed.”

All of the work that required Inter-Garrison’s closure was done under the road. The campus planning team utilized the break and the road being broken up to deal with general maintenance under the campus. This work was executed and completed before students returned for classes on Jan. 22.

The largest, and most notable of changes, took place on Sixth Avenue. “The work done on Sixth Avenue between Eighth and Inter-Garrison was one part of a dozen projects on campus which included the new sidewalk, a permanent raised crosswalk, a repaved bus stop, and the beginning of planting and landscaping of that area,” said McCluney.

When asked if the speed humps would return to Sixth Avenue, McCluney said that the temporary speed humps were replaced with the permanent raised crosswalk. Work on sidewalks was also done on Fourth Avenue across from the Alumni center. The large cement gutter that was present before is now a sidewalk for pedestrians to use to better access the campus.
