Power Outage Scheduled for February 5
February 4, 2016
On Friday, February 5 at 11:00 p.m., a planned power outage
will cut electrical service to the following buildings:
- Administration Building (AD)
- Cecil and Ida Green Center (GC)
- Cecil H. Green Hall (GR)
- English Learning Center (ELS)
- Erik Jonsson Academic Center (JO)
- Founders North (FN)
- North Lab (NL)
- North Office Building (NB)
- Parking Structure 3 (PS3)
- Physics Building & Physics Annex (PHY & PHA)
- Visual Art Studio (AS)
The purpose of the shutdown is to perform maintenance on the electrical
distribution systems in these buildings. We expect to have power restored
by approximately 7:00 a.m., except for the Administration Building (AD) which will be restored at 10:00 a.m.
If you have any equipment in these areas, please take the necessary precautions
to make sure it will not be affected by the shutdown.
Please make sure that all computers are turned off and protect sensitive equipment
to prevent the loss of critical information.
For safety reasons, no one will be allowed in the affected buildings
during this outage without UTD Police authorization.
City to Change Synergy-Floyd Intersection to All-Way Stop
February 3, 2016
UT Dallas Police urge motorists to exercise caution at the busy Synergy-Floyd
intersection on Thursday as city work crews install two new stop signs. When the work
is completed Friday, drivers will need to bring their vehicles to a complete stop
before traveling either direction on Synergy Park Boulevard.
The city planned the new all-way stop in response to University requests
for a study of traffic counts. In addition to the stop signs, the pavement markings
will be refreshed and updated to include stop bars on Synergy.

On Monday, February 8, the gravel pathway on the east side of the creek
near Callier Richardson (CR) will temporarily close
to allow construction crews to install utility lines to the new Callier Richardson expansion.
During this time, pedestrians should use the path on the west side of the creek,
which passes the Bioengineering (BSB) and
NSERLNatural Science and Engineering Research Lab
Weather permitting, work will be complete and the path will reopen
at the end of March.
Pedestrian Path Changes
December 16, 2015
Landscape enhancement work on the walkway from the Trellis to Rutford Avenue
is on track to be completed by December 21. At this time, doors that were blocked
for the project’s construction in Lloyd V. Berkner Hall (BE,) Founders Building (FO,) North Engineering and Computer Science (ECSN) and the Student Union (SU) will reopen for pedestrian use.
Simultaneously, the west side door to the Student Union Food Court will close
to better accommodate construction on the Campus Landscape Enhancement Project,
scheduled for completion late spring 2016.
Progress also continues on landscape work near the Visual Art Studio (AS,) the Science Learning Center (SLC,) Founders North (FN,) Founders Building (FO) and Founders West Annex (FA.) Some pedestrian paths and building entrances
will remain blocked by fencing, but all buildings will be accessible during the project,
which is estimated to be finished late spring 2016.
