The Fairbanks Hall Renovation Project is now in construction. Due to truck delivery activity, to avoid trucks attempting to stage and offload directly on Jefferson Street, safety concerns, and clearances required in the construction area, the ADA parking spaces located on the west side of the Fairbanks Hall parking lot (lot #3301) will be offline for use starting Friday, September 10, 2021 (view map). Click here to view a map of nearby ADA parking spaces. You can expect increased activities at the building site and an increase in truck traffic on Jefferson Way, to and from 35th Street.

For questions or comments on this closure, contact construction manager Amy Keene at 541-214-1038. Please contact Transportation Services at 541-737-2583 for additional ADA parking assistance, if needed.

Because the building is centrally located on campus, please be aware that construction work is starting for the Fairbanks Hall renovation project. You can expect more activities at the building site along SW 26th Street and Jefferson Way as Fortis Construction starts work on the building.

You can expect:

  • A higher level of truck traffic on 35th Street and Jefferson Way.
  • The start of demolition of the metal Fairbanks Annex building will start this week.
  • A vacuum excavation truck will be onsite for exploratory work on Wednesday, August 4.

These activities will produce noise, as expected for typical construction work onsite. We will continue to provide information about other activities that may impact campus for the duration of the project.

For questions or comments on this closure, contact construction manager Amy Keene at 541-214-1038.
