Between City capital projects, ODOT projects in town, and Kent State University projects on the Kent campus, this summer is shaping up to be one of the busiest construction seasons in Kent in years. Kent is doing it’s best to live up to the ambitions of putting shovels in the dirt to stimulate the regional economy. There’s no doubt that seasonal employment levels, at least in the construction trades should be near record highs in a couple of months — especially once the Crain Avenue/Fairchild Avenue bridge project gets into gear. These days even temporary construction jobs are welcome news. Here’s an update from the University Architect’s office on the status of the work planned for the Kent State campus.
To the University Community:
Major improvement projects, administered by Kent State Office of the University Architect, are already under construction this summer!
Please see the attached files of the Kent Campus Summer 2009 Construction Map and the list of major projects.
