In November 2018, Catholic University began a campus-wide upgrade of our utility systems. This includes replacement of the heating and cooling plant and construction of new underground piping that will distribute utilities to campus buildings. The upgrade will improve the efficiency and reliability of utility distribution and will reduce overall energy consumption. The project will also enable future routine and emergency maintenance without significant disruption to the University community.
There will be noticeable intermittent disruption to pedestrian walkways, automobile traffic, and parking spaces during construction. You should expect occasional closure of existing pedestrian and vehicular routes, noise from excavation and material deliveries, dust from open trenches, and minimal vibration during installation of the piping. Updates on changes to pedestrian routes and parking lot closures will be posted to this website.
