University replacing water lines

If you’ve walked past the Brooks College of Health, then you’ve seen the huge mounds of dirt and construction workers.

The construction is due to the university replacing the heating and hot water lines for J. Brooks Brown Hall Addition (Bldg. 39A), Coggin College of Business (Bldg. 42) and Honors Hall (Bldg. 10).

The line that is being changed was one of the original lines and had a leak, prompting the replacement.

The project is expected to be completed by the middle of June.

“It shouldn’t affect students, there will be some rerouting with foot traffic while the project is going on, but other than that it has minimal impact on students,” said Wallace Harris, director of facilities operation.
