Construction to begin on Forestry and Environmental Conservation building week of April 15-19


Construction will begin on the Forestry and Environmental Conservation building the week of April 15-19. Traffic may be impacted as crews work in the area. Those nearing the construction zone must obey all traffic signs, signals and construction flaggers.  

Phase one of construction includes the removal of the E-21 parking lot and the construction site preparation, which includes the removal of some trees. A portion of the site will be reforested with native trees to provide a teaching outdoor laboratory and improve the current ecosystem, and overall, the project’s tree management plan includes a net gain of 106 trees in the area, in line with the University’s comprehensive tree care methods

Next month, crews will install utilities underneath a section of Cherry Road between Jersey Lane and Zeta Theta Street for the new building, which will affect traffic patterns. Construction is scheduled to begin at the intersection of Jersey Lane on May 13. 

The University broke ground on March 8 on the new 85,000-square-foot facility, which will include classrooms, labs, collaboration spaces, offices and support areas. The project is scheduled for completion in early 2026.
