Active Projects (Updated July 1, 2021)

8th St. Lighting Improvements

We will be adding several lights along 8th St. next to Alikut. The lights and poles arrived yesterday and bids to install them are due next week. Part of the project is to remove the tall pole lights along 8th and G avenue that are currently not working.


The foundations and stem walls are nearing completion. The structural steel building will start showing up on Monday. We will start to see a building later this summer.

Head Start

The new building and site work are 95% complete with just a handful of things that will be finished by July 10, 2021.

Utility Meter Upgrades

New utility meters for Inlow, Ackerman, and Loso. JCI is still waiting to receive parts. This project seems to be feeling the effects of material shortages and manufacturing delays from COVID. Should be done by the end of the summer.

Ackerman Anthropology Space

Demolition in the old Head Start office is complete this week. Feel free to peek in and take a look- it looks much different now. Thanks to Brad, Darryl, Jon B., and Nic for helping safe-off the utilities for demolition. Design is still underway and we will have some site visits from engineers to look at the space now that it is gutted.

Grand Staircase

The design team conducted their first site visit on June 17, 2021. The soils engineer is scheduling borings that will help determine what type of ground movement is occurring. The survey crew will also be out in the next few weeks to conduct a land survey and gather underground utility information.

Upcoming Projects

South Campus Pedestrian Access Improvements

New crosswalks at G Avenue and the sidewalk along the west side of the free parking lot that connects G avenue. Pedestrian access to the Community Stadium.

Baseball Stadium

Planning is currently underway for a new baseball stadium at the southwest corner of campus. The project will include placing artificial turf in the softball infield. A soil investigation is underway to determine what type of excavation and ground improvements will need to be done for a new field and facilities. We plan to use a significant portion of the dirt pile known as “Mt. Welch” as fill. A civil engineer is currently doing a mass grading evaluation to look at soils volumes and field elevations. The next big hurdle before the project can advance is fundraising. 3D images were created to assist in this effort. If you happen to know anyone with a passion for college baseball who would like to make a donation, please contact EOU Advancement at (541) 962-3085.
