Tempe campus road restrictions to begin for construction project

March 08, 2010

With the upcoming construction of a new research building on the southeast corner of McAllister Avenue and Terrace Road, road restrictions will be put into place in late March or early April, on the ASU Tempe campus.

The impacted areas will be the narrowing of McAllister between Lemon Street and Terrace, and the closure of Terrace from McAllister east to the visitor gate for the Rural Road parking structure. The sidewalk on the east side of McAllister between Lemon and Terrace will be closed. These restrictions are expected to last about two years.

Both lanes of McAllister will be restriped to accommodate north and south bound traffic. The impacted areas will be fenced off by the general contractor. Faculty and staff will continue to have access to the Rural Road parking structure from Rural and Lemon.

Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building 4 (ISTB 4) will contain approximately 300,000 sq. ft. of high technology research laboratory and office space. It will house researchers, faculty and staff for the School of Earth and Space Exploration, Synthetic Chemistry, Environmental Engineering, Energy Research initiatives and Public Outreach.

The project budget is $160 million, with the construction completion scheduled for Spring 2012. The contractor is Sundt Construction.
