Repairs to the roof of Clemons Library—including the addition of a solar array that will help power the building—begin today, October 17. Scaffolding going up in front and on the side of the 4th floor will be covered to protect traffic from falling debris during construction. Facilities Management will limit the noise as much as possible.
Simultaneous with construction on the roof, the stairs on the western side of Clemons will be closed while they are being repaired to prevent future safety hazards—puddles and possible ice formation in winter. A temporary set of stairs will be installed sometime next week.
The roof construction project is scheduled to run from October 17 through December 29, but is subject to change due to weather and construction delays.
