As usual, summer on campus brings a list of construction projects.
This year, Missouri State Dining Services is adding Panda Express and Red Mango to the PSU Food Court. Construction in the former Freshens and Wok n Roll areas has resulted in a long plywood wall along the west side of the Food Court. A peek behind the wall shows the work being done to demo the old vendor locations as well as the former West Lounge.
Elsewhere on campus, traffic is being rerouted and visitors are following a treasure map to parking as the city works on a project that will create a better entrance to campus on Monroe. A traffic signal and additional turning lanes will make things much smoother at that corner when construction is completed.
The Foster Recreation Center is still under construction but it is definitely starting to look like a fitness facility. The first deliveries of fitness equipment are due in next week, and Campus Recreation staff expects to be able to move into their new offices in early July.
When the fall semester begins we will have a lot to celebrate!
