Campus Impacts

This project will close the patio area between the Bronco and the Bookstore as well as the ramp leading to the area from Market Street. Construction fencing will be placed at the sidewalk and adjusted as needed.  The sidewalk will be closed at times and pedestrians will need to cross the street to get to the west side of Benson.
