Update: construction progresses on recreation center

By Andre' Williams
On November 8, 2013

Ground breaking for the construction of the new student recreation center was held June 18, 2013.
 Since then, that area has been blocked off from pedestrians.
 While there may not be much visible evidence of advancement from outside the gate, there is progress made each week.
 Since construction began, the old building that housed the pool has been demolished.
 There have also been several new installations to the area such as new pool drain piping, pool plumbing, and a telecommunications duct bank.
 Last week's activities included the completion of the new access road, the demolition of the existing building foundation and interior stairs, and the removal of all demolition debris.
 Due to rain from the past few days, progress has not been as swift as usual. Some of the time was used for dewatering the jobsite after the heavy rainfall.
 The next few days will have very little precipitation so progress will be as scheduled.
 The recreation center is projected to be completed Jan. 9, 2015 with a price tag of $31,390,000.
