Logan Hall Landscaping Project

UNM Facilities Management (FM) will be performing landscape improvements to Logan Hall beginning Oct. 26. Here’s what you need to know:

Project Area

The project is taking place at Logan Hall located on Redondo Road across from the Art Annex building. 

Time and Dates

The work is planned to begin on Oct. 26 and is expected to last approximately 2 weeks. Note: this project is weather dependent and time frames may change should adverse weather conditions occur.

Pedestrian and Traffic Impacts

  • Vehicle traffic on Redondo is not expected to be impacted, though drivers should be aware of equipment and crews working in the area.
  • The pathway along the west side of the building will be closed as needed throughout the projects and pedestrians may encounter signage to redirect traffic flow.

 

Facility Impacts

The west door of Logan Hall will be closed periodically for pedestrian safety as equipment and crews operate in the area, however this will not be for the duration of the project and signage will be posted as needed to guide pedestrians. 

Noise

Some general noise from trenching equipment can be expected at times, but it should not be excessive or sustained.

Walking path changes for north campus

UNM Facilities Management (FM) would like to inform UNM and the surrounding community that scheduled repairs for the drainage system near Bratton Hall will require a portion of the walking path surrounding UNM North Course to be closed for construction from Sept. 20 through mid-November, weather permitting. Here’s what you need to know:

Project Area

The work will take place adjacent to the New Mexico Court of Appeals and Bratton Hall at the southern most edge of the course (see map below for details).

Normal working hours for the project will be 7 a.m.-4 p.m. The expected mid-November completion time frame may require adjustment should unexpected weather conditions occur.

Closure & Traffic Impacts

In the interest of public safety, the southern portions of Bernalillo Open Space Trail will be closed to trail users for the duration of the project (Sept. 20 through mid-November). 

Path users will be redirected to an alternative route along Yale Boulevard, Tucker Avenue, and Stanford Drive. For safety, to maintain course play, and to preserve grounds conditions, path users are asked to respect the detour and not leave the designated path.

Parking Lot Impacts

During the project, approximately six to eight parking spaces in the L-Lot along Tucker Avenue will be occupied by construction crews. Lot users should use caution as there will be construction vehicles and equipment moving in the area.
