Walk this way
Some walking paths on East Campus closed by construction
1:48 p.m., Aug. 21, 2013--With construction underway on the new Academy Street Dining and Residence Hall (ASDR) and the renovation of Harrington Residence Hall, pedestrians are advised that some paths on East Campus are temporarily closed and that they should be alert to construction equipment in the area.
For example, the path through the Grove from the South Green to Academy Street will be closed until early December.
The recommended path for pedestrian traffic from the Harrington Beach area to central campus is along the north side of the Perkins Student Center by Thompson Hall.
Students and staff are reminded to comply with all laws regarding pedestrians and to follow the directions of the assigned construction flag personnel and/or police officers who are working in their best interest and safety.

Members of the community also are reminded that access to these construction sites is restricted. For safety and security reasons, access is only allowed to those authorized to be there. Security cameras monitor the sites, UD Police regularly patrol the area and trespassers are subject to arrest.
Both the Academy Street Dining and Residence Hall project and the Harrington Residence Hall renovation are scheduled to be completed by fall 2015.
