Power Outages, Maintenance and Construction Planned for Winter Break
December 8, 2014
In order to minimize disruptions and inconvenience, UT Dallas Facilities Management has scheduled several power outages during winter break for annual maintenance, inspections and cleaning of critical equipment.
The Central Energy Plant (EP) and Satellite Utility Plant (SUP,) which affect heating and air conditioning only, will be shut down from 9:00 p.m. Saturday, December 20, through Saturday, December 27. Several campus buildings will be without heating or air conditioning while maintenance work is performed.
In addition, on Monday, December 22, the following buildings will undergo power outages for maintenance and inspections.
- Lloyd V. Berkner Hall (BE)
- Eugene McDermott Library (MC)
- Waterview Science and Technology Center (WSTC)
All power, including electricity, will be out in these buildings during maintenance. No one will be allowed into the affected buildings during the power outages without prior notification and authorization of the UT Dallas Police.

In partnership with the City of Richardson, UT Dallas Facilities Management will begin work to add a new segment to Loop Road in January 2015. Once completed, the new addition will cut through the center areas of parking lots A, B, C and D, and will connect into the existing Loop Road near Parking Structure 3 (PS3) and the Satellite Utility Plant (SUP.) The project includes a new bridge near lot R and renovated road connections at W. Lookout Drive and at Facilities Way.
Work on this project will be completed in phases, starting with parking lots A and B. Portions of lots A and B will be barricaded before January 5 to allow crews to start work. The affected lots will still be open for parking, but please be aware that there will be additional construction traffic and activity in the area. Once the road work is complete in lots A and B, the lots will be resurfaced, restriped and fully reopened. Crews will then begin work in lots C and D following the same process. Weather permitting, the parking lot phases of the project should be completed before the start of the fall 2015 semester. All phases of the project will be completed by late fall 2015.
Construction will also continue on the North Mall enhancement project, slated for completion in spring 2015, and on the new Bioengineering and Sciences Building (BSB,) slated for completion in late 2015.
In addition, Facilities Management crews will be working in several buildings during the break to paint, refinish floors and complete needed renovations and maintenance.
