Renovating will alter access to Rotunda

Three maintenance projects on the Lawn will alter foot traffic near the Rotunda from June 19 through Oct. 6.

A ramp will be built on the West side of the Lawn entrance to the Rotunda; a new sprinkler system will be installed on the Lawn; and a multi-year project will begin to replace the Rotunda's deck, which serves as a roof for several U.Va. offices. Through the summer, pedestrians will have to use the East tunnel entrance to get to the Rotunda.

"We'll be removing and replacing the deck, the balustrade and the materials underneath which provide the waterproofing for the quarter of the deck closest to Pavilion I," said Facilities Management chief Robert P. Dillman. Due to the work, the Student Affairs office will relocate to the lower level of Madison House from mid-June until mid-October.

The section of the deck over the Board of Visitors office will be replaced next summer, followed by the portion over the Development office in the 2002 summer. The project will conclude in the summer of 2003, when the area over the Office of the Architect for the University is completed, Dillman said.
