Memorial Road from West Mall to East Mall

  • Public Consultation - Open House was held on Wednesday, January 11, 2012, 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. at Main Floor, Lasserre, 6333 Memorial Road
  • Construction Complete: 2012

Description

The transformation of this space enhances the campus and creates universal accessibility throughout the project area.

The pedestrian experience along Memorial Road from East Mall to the Music Building steps is now significantly improved. Parking in front of the Old Administration Building was replaced with two broad walkways, expanded lawn areas, plantings, seating, lighting, ornamental cherry trees and a decorative rain garden to manage stormwater. The rain garden is both an aesthetic and environmental amenity that demonstrates the University’s commitment to sustainable campus development through ecological stormwater management.
