master plan

Henry W. Bloch Executive Hall for Entrepreneurship and Innovation

JE Dunn began limited site activities on Thursday March 29, 2012, with the demolition of the Chancellor’s Residence and the creation of construction phase accessible parking for the Henry W. Bloch School of Management at the Cherry Street entrance to the Bloch School Parking Lot 12.

Entrance to the Bloch School Parking Lot 12 will only be available from Oak Street and exit will be via Oak Street or the Law School drive. The eastern row of parking will be utilized for material storage and the JE Dunn trailer in this initial phase.

It is anticipated that the eastern half of the Bloch School Parking Lot 12 will be closed for additional construction activities the week of April 9th. At that time, changes will also be made to reduce the number of meter spaces in the Law School Parking Lot 45.

With the assistance of the Toy and Miniature Museum, additional Faculty and Staff parking will be available in that lot beginning on Monday, March 12, 2012 and lasting through Spring Commencement.

The closure of the balance of the Bloch School Parking Lot 12 will not occur until after the Spring Commencement.
