The second phase would renovate the entire kitchen ad serving areas ( approximately 7,000 square feet) and expand seating capacity. Before design begins, a study will be completed.

Re-line Storm Water Pipe at College Hill & Minges

Approximately 400 linear feet of stormwater drainage pipe serving College Hill and 640 linear feet of stormwater drainage pipe serving the Minges Coliseum parking lots have failed in various locations due to holes in the pipe and joints separations. The project scope is to re-line the pipe in lieu of replacing it with new piping. This will avoid closing down large areas of heavily used campus roadway and parking lot for repairs. Pipe relining has already successfully been used on campus.

Transit Improvements                                                                                                                          

Transit will be constructing a new pre-engineered metal building to house a wash bay for the universities bus fleet. The building is approximately 6,000 sqft and will include associated site work, concrete and utilities. As part of this project the existing maintenance facility will be converted to accommodate the maintenance of CNG fueled vehicles. Specific changes required include installation of a direct connect exhaust system, addition of a gas detection system, installation of low intensity gas fired heaters and additional exhaust fans. With these changes and the strategic change in fuel source, the current facility will be brought into compliance with all safety regulations for CNG facilities.
