Yale West Campus Landscape Improvement Project
As part of continuous improvements at West Campus construction of the Landscape Improvement Project began at the end of April. This project will transform the outdoor spaces surrounding the Conference Center and adjacent research buildings by creating new pedestrian pathways, expanding greenspaces, and improving traffic circulation for the shuttles and other vehicles. The project is scheduled to be complete by spring 2019.
Blue fencing marks the boundaries of the project area and this will impact access to certain building entrances and parking lots. Please note that access to the project area is strictly prohibited except for emergency egress.
The entrance to the Integrated Science & Technology Center has been temporarily relocated to the Energy Sciences Center I located at 520 West Campus Drive.
The entrance to the Advanced Biosciences Center has been temporarily relocated to the South Entrance of the building.
UPDATE, MARCH 29, 2019:
Crews are taking advantage of cooperative spring weather to resume their work to complete the West Campus Landscape Improvement Project. Work will recommence on Monday, April 1, requiring the removal of the orange fencing around exterior pathways and once again restricting access to the entire work area until the project is completed. Thank you for your patience in this final stage of the work.
UPDATE, FEBRUARY 15, 2019:
Although areas within the Landscape Project will remain restricted until the project is completed a pathway has been opened to allow for outdoor pedestrian travel between the Conference Center and buildings to the west. Snow fencing has been placed along this pedestrian route to separate it from the active construction site. A map highlighting the accessible pathway can be found below.
Please exercise caution when using these exterior pathways during inclement weather. These areas will not be addressed by Grounds until the more critical areas of campus are cleared.
Please refer to the following documents for information about the project:
- Campus map showing project area and designated parking lots identified by letter
- Parking lot assignments based on building affiliation, including designated parking for Conference Center event attendees
- Temporary shuttle stops and building access
- Artistic renderings of the project area
We will continue to notify the campus about changes as they arise. We know that construction projects may cause inconvenience and we appreciate your patience.
