Planned Sidewalk Closure and Power Outage on Fairfax Campus

Posted: August 14, 2019 at 1:49 pm

Sidewalks on the east side of the Johnson Center along the walkway in front of David King Hall, Planetary Hall and Enterprise Hall will be closed intermittently from Thursday, August 15 through Friday, August 23 to accommodate work on the Core Campus Project.

Work will include saw cutting and breaking up of sidewalk concrete, test pitting and area restoration.

Also, power will be turned off in several buildings and areas from 4-6 a.m. on August 15, so Dominion Power can restore a primary power loop that will increase overall system reliability and provide future power for the new academic building.

Robinson B, Center for the Arts, SUB I, Harris Theatre, Buchanan Hall, Music/Theater, Innovation Hall, Johnson Center, K Lot parking lights, and Mason Pond Parking Deck will be affected by the temporary power outage.
