Strand Ag: As part of the Strand Ag Renovation Project, Waldo Place from Campus Way to just north of the middle entrance will be closed May 15, from 6-10 a.m. Concrete trucks will be in the street so that we can place concrete footings in the basement of Strand. The main east entrance to Strand will remain open for pedestrian travel.

During this time, Jefferson Street will need to be used to cross 15th towards Kerr Admin. Signage will be in place to help direct pedestrians.
