Intermittent Entrance Closure in Norman Hall
The first floor entrance to New Norman Hall and the little courtyard on the north side of the building will be closed intermittently beginning Tuesday, April 9th. The closed entrance is located under the breezeway between Old Norman and New Norman Hall near the Counselor Education faculty and SHDSOE main office. The sidewalk will be torn up, landscaping removed, a new gas line brought in from SW 12th St, and a new generator will be installed. The intermittent work is expected to last two weeks. Parking should remain available in the small parking lot but access to Norman might require walking around the building to the south entrances near the parking garage.
