Lower Sproul Redevelopment
The Lower Sproul Redevelopment program is designed to revitalize the area on the south side of campus near Bancroft and Telegraph. The program includes the replacement of Eshleman Hall; renovation and addition to the MLK Jr. Student Union; upgrades to Cesar Chavez Student Center; and improvements to the plaza. Construction is scheduled to be complete in fall 2015.
The north sidewalk, parking and one driving lane of Bancroft Way between Telegraph Ave. and Dana Street will be closed for the duration of construction.
More information about Lower Sproul Redevelopment can be found at lowersproul.berkeley.edu.
UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive
Construction is underway for a project that will create a new home for BAM/PFA, a vibrant multi-media art center for the campus and community. This center is comprised of the re-purposed former UC printing plant at 2120 Oxford Street as well as new construction. The donor-funded facility will house BAM/PFA’s exhibition galleries, library, film study center; education and art-making spaces; store; cafe; and offices as well as a 230-seat theater and a 32-seat screening room. The new facility is scheduled to open in early 2016.
The sidewalks on Addison, Oxford and Center Streets immediately adjacent to the project site will be closed during construction. Parking and driving lane closures, some temporary, are also anticipated.
For images of the new facility and more information about the new home for BAM/PFA please go to bampfa.berkeley.edu/newbuilding.
The BAM/PFA project is scheduled to begin finishing sidewalks and curbs and pave adjacent streets starting the week of March 9. Traffic lane closures and detours are planned and some of the activities will be disruptive. This work is expected to continue through mid-April.
Curbs and Gutters
Project work includes removal of existing and placement with new concrete curbs and gutters adjacent to the new BAM/PFA. Each phase of the work will start on Addison, then wrap around Oxford and down Center St.
The project will pave a small section of Addison, southbound Oxford from Addison to Center St., and Center St. from Oxford to Shattuck. A drawing showing the plans is online at http://realestate.berkeley.edu/berkeley-art-museum-and-pacific-film-archive.
Paving work will include a grinding machine removing existing asphalt (up to 9" deep in some locations), placement of new hot-asphalt paving and repainting traffic striping (including the mid-block crosswalk on Center). Grinding asphalt causes dust; this activity will be limited to the morning hours to minimize the impact on nearby businesses and pedestrians.
Addison Street: The eastern section of Addison Street will be closed for approximately two days while the asphalt is removed and replaced. Both the University Hall "well" and University Hall West surface parking lot will be accessible from the west (i.e. the Shattuck / Addison intersection).
Center Street: Center Street repaving will take approximately ten days. There will be times when two-way traffic on Center Street cannot be maintained. When that is the case, flaggers and signs will be in place. Pedestrian access along the south side of Center Street will be maintained at all times.
No Parking signs will be posted 72 hours in advance of any restrictions. As noted, the work will take place in different areas around the site at different times. When there are lane closures and/or detours, flaggers will direct traffic.
Deliveries to area businesses will be maintained, however please expect traffic delays during this time.
