The area between the old cafeteria building and road and the area between the road and the tennis court is marked as a temporary construction area. The road in between the temporary construction areas and a small path between the tennis court and the temporary construction area near the tennis court are marked as no pedestrian zone.

Jacobsen Construction has prepared sites for demolition and construction for the new cafeteria. During this process, safety is the top priority. Please be aware these sites are temporary. There is no pedestrian traffic along with the Academic Oval by the construction site. Pedestrians are asked to use the walkway by the tennis courts between the McKay Gymnasium & Pool to Hale 1.
