Paving the way to a nicer Lower Mall

Posted on Friday, August 13, 2010

Mall_Repaving_InnerThe Lower Mall is undergoing quite a transformation these days. First, French drains were installed on either side of the roadway. Next, gravel was applied to raise the surface up to curb level. Then, as pictured here, came the paving.

Bringing up the pavement so it's flush with the curbs will make the mall more pedestrian-friendly and less like a street, says Project Manager Steve De Bruhl.

The work in the Lower Mall is expected to be completed Aug. 20, and it's part of a larger paving project slated to be finished in early September. The paving is being done in conjunction with the construction of the Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons and the renovation of the newly renamed James C. Pigott Pavilion for Leadership.
