Temporary Detours: Parking and Pathways  

Beginning December 15, 2019: Fencing Will be Installed Throughout the Center of Campus

Beginning December 15, 2019, fencing will be installed throughout the center of campus to initiate the demolition of the former Student Services building and Activities Center, which will continue through June 30, 2020. The fence will remain in place for construction of the Behavioral & Social Science building and the Arts Complex until August 2022. The fencing project will affect the walkway between the Library and the buildings slated for demolition. The fencing will be placed on the walkway that stretches across library lawn, and runs parallel to the Library and will continue on the southern walkway parallel to the Art North building; the western walkaway that runs parallel to the North Gym; and the northern walkway parallel to the Communications building. The new construction portion of the project will occur between August 2020 and August 2022. The fencing will remain up until the completion of the project. Construction vehicles will access the demolition and construction site from Manhattan Beach Blvd between Lemoli Avenue and Crenshaw Blvd. Safety personnel will be stationed at the Manhattan Beach Blvd. entrance and on campus near the site at the crosswalk near the Communications building and the Planetarium.
