    2. First Street, from McArthur Drive to the west entrance of the parking lot at Fowler House is closed for utility work.
  5. Construction of the Wayne T. and Mary T. Hockmeyer Hall of Structural Biology has begun. The two-year project will have construction traffic entering onto Harrison Street between South Russell Street and Martin Jischke Drive.
  6. Construction of the Purdue Village Community Center and the Patty Jischke Early Care and Education Center is under way. The sites are on the north side of Nimitz Drive, east of Squirrel Park. Construction traffic exits and enters from Airport Road onto Nimitz Drive.
  7. A University-wide water and chilled water valve replacement project is under way. The locations are widespread on campus. Beware of equipment and fencing.
  8. Discovery Park Site Development Phase 6 is under way. The project includes work around Mann Hall, Bindley Bioscience Center, and Burton Morgan Center. Please use caution in this area.
  9. Renovations at Young Hall are underway. A construction freight elevator will be installed on the West side of the building. Several parking spaces are unavailable. Please use caution in the area.
  10. The Office of the University Architect, in cooperation with Purdue University Police Department, has posted a temporary stop sign at the intersection of N. University Drive and Tower Drive near Mackey Arena. The temporary stop sign is for drivers going north on North University and will serve to safely assist pedestrians crossing at that intersection.
  11. Large trucks and high voltage cable reels will be positioned on the sidewalks along Harrison Street near Lynn Hall all next week for an electrical project (February 11-15). This area will be fenced as the contractor completes the work. In addition, a couple of parking spaces will be blocked at the manholes so the contractor may get his equipment in and out of the manholes.
