Facilities Service Interruptions

McDowell Hall Elevator #1 - Out of Service

Today Monday, October 16th, McDowell Hall elevator #1 is out of service. Service is expected to resume tomorrow, October 17th; we will provide an update once the work has been completed.

Concrete Curb and Sidewalk Work

Starting Friday , October 13, a contractor will begin replacing damaged sections of concrete curb and sidewalk located along the amphitheater side of the roadway between the tunnel and the top of the hill at the Flag Plaza. During this work, the sidewalk will be closed and pedestrians will be detoured to the sidewalk on the other side of the road.  


The work will involve jack hammering the damaged areas which will create a period of noise in the morning. This work is weather dependent and may continue through the weekend if needed.

Electrical Repair Affecting Hughes Hall 2nd Floor

Wednesday, October 18 from 11am to approximately 2pm, the power will be off on the 2nd floor on Hughes Hall to make an electrical repair. Please turn off all computers and electronic devices prior to the power outage.

Road Closure

Starting Monday, September 25 and ending approximately Tuesday, October 31 from 8am until 6pm daily (week days only), construction and digging will begin at the Letts Anderson Quad Entrance (McKinley Side). The entire "McKinley Beach" area will be fenced off and will take up part of the traffic lane in that area. Please note that this area was recently changed to a one way traffic lane recently so this will not affect the traffic pattern.

 

Please accept our apology in advance for any inconvenience these interruptions might cause and thank you for your patience as we continue to work to improve our facilities. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the 2FIX Customer Response Center at x2349 or email 2fix@american.edu. Thank you.
