Science Center Construction
Completed Fall 2013
The Science Center opened for the beginning of the Fall 2013 semester. The building is aiming to achieve LEED silver certification, which will designate it as an energy efficient building. Mosaic Associates of East Greenbush, NY, served as the lead firm and architect of record for the Science Center. They worked with design and engineering experts from Payette and Vanderweil of Boston, and Ryan-Biggs and The LA Group from the Capital Region. U.W. Marx Construction Company was the project manager.

South Drive Reconstruction
Completed Summer 2013
During the summer of 2013, South Drive was widened from Vandenburgh Avenue to the east entrance to the parking garage. The roadway now consists of three lanes of traffic with two lanes exiting campus and one lane entering from Route 4.

Cross Road Reconstruction
Completed Fall 2013
Work was completed on a project that will eliminate all vehicle traffic from the center of campus from Hudson Hall and the McDonough Sports Complex to Vandenburgh Avenue.

The project involved moving Cross Road behind those two buildings and creating a new pedestrian-friendly green space. Plantings, benches and seating areas adjacent to the student pavilion will expand the beauty and usefulness of that area of campus. This is the culmination of a decade-long process to increase green space and move vehicle traffic to the perimeter of campus.

There is now a drop off circle in front of McDonough and another drop off area south of Higbee Hall.

The project also included modifications to the loading area behind the Campus Center as well as reconfiguration of two existing staff parking areas.
