Timetable changed for Charles Street construction

The early November planned shutdown of Charles Street between 29th Street and University Parkway near the Homewood campus has been delayed until after Jan. 1, 2012. A specific time is not yet known, and the university is awaiting new dates from the city’s Department of Transportation, according to Larry Kilduff, executive director of Facilities Management. The project will happen as planned, Kilduff said.

In the meantime, BGE continues its work to install a new gas line from 25th Street to University Parkway, a project that has to be finished in advance of the start of the Charles Street reconstruction project. Progress on this work is on schedule and expected to be completed by the end of December, Kilduff said.
