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. Pedestrian access to campus is via Sproul Plaza at Telegraph Avenue or Spieker Plaza at Dana Street.

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.

Dwight Way Childcare Center
UC Berkeley’s Early Childhood Education Program is adding a new center on Dwight Way just west of Telegraph Avenue. Prefabricated units will be placed and finished to support a childcare program for infants, toddlers and staff with outdoor play space. The new center is scheduled to open in summer 2014.
