Street upgrades to Sam Sibley Drive begin today

Northwestern State University is in the beginning stages of an overlay project of Sam Sibley Drive. Regional Construction has begun mobilization and placed barricades in front of the Dr. Randall J. Webb Wellness, Recreation and Activities Center and Caspari Hall. The campus community can expect workers and construction equipment from the corner of Sam Sibley Drive and Caspari down the hill to the intersection with South Jefferson at Chaplin’s Lake.

The first stage of the project will include the removal of existing concrete in front of the WRAC and Caspari Hall, which will be redesigned with drainage considerations that will dictate the rest of the project. Access to the Caspari Hall parking lot and the front of Roy Hall will not be blocked.

Individuals on campus should not relocate or remove barricades. The upgrades should be completed before the start of the fall semester.
