Bay Settlement Entrance is now open

Thanks to the facilities crew which worked diligently to clean Green Bay Campus roads after the “perfect storm” of heavy snowfall followed by extreme cold which made salting ineffective. The hillside from the Bay Settlement Entrance was especially ice-covered and difficult because of shade and overnight freezing. The entrance is now open to campus and community traffic. Thank you for slowing down on campus roads and for your patience as we host those coming to campus for vaccinations and COVID-19 Rapid Testing.

 

 

Please use Kress Center Parking for Vaccine site and COVID-19 Testing

Prevea Health is partnering with UW-Green Bay to launch two community COVID-19 vaccine clinics—one at the Kress Events Center on the UW-Green Bay campus in Green Bay and another on the Sheboygan Campus. When the clinic on the Green Bay Campus begins operation Monday, Jan.  18you will see increased traffic in the area and the availability of parking will be reduced.

Starting on Monday, Jan. 18, 2021, the Kress Events Center parking lot will be dedicated to supporting both the Prevea Health vaccination clinic and the campus student/faculty/staff testing. (Please be aware of separate entrances for each). If you are not participating in one of these activities, please plan to park in an alternate location. The nearby Baird Foundation parking lot, which had been previously closed for winter, will be open to general campus use for the remainder of the semester.

 

Reminder: Environmental Sciences corridor access

While the mechanical improvements are being finalized within the Environmental Sciences building on the Green Bay Campus, the concourse tunnel corridor will be closed to all individuals in order to provide safety to the contractors and general public. There will be barricades placed on either end of the corridor. Please do not ignore these barricades and proceed through the corridor. Use either people pocket exits from the Instructional Services building or Laboratory Sciences building to go around Environmental Sciences.

Watch your step, annual floor care is Aug. 9-14

Beginning Sunday, Aug. 9 through Friday, Aug. 14, Operations personnel will be performing their annual floor care during the daytime and evening hours. Please honor all signs and postings in conjunction with these projects so the floors are ready for another school year. During floor care week, Operations will not be able to honor office moves, event set-ups or other potential events.

Lab Science to Environmental Science concourse, closed July 14 – 16

Reminder: asbestos abatement removal is taking place in the corridor between Laboratory Sciences and Environmental Sciences at the concourse level. The abatement contractor will be closing the corridor on Tuesday, July 14 and reopening the corridor the morning of Friday, July 17. Please access Laboratory Sciences from the second floor level during this event.

7-2020 Route 7 UWGB

The main campus will be starting some significant construction projects in July with some extending into August. All projects should be completed prior to the student move-in dates and commencement

CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS – JULY & AUGUST

  1. Leon Bond Drive: From Bay Settlement to Kress Events Center will be closed all traffic in July. Closing the road will allow the work to be done quicker and in a safer manner. I would expect that this may occur on July 6, 2020.

  3. Cofrin Library: Exterior brick work. Beginning July 6, 2020.
  4. Concourse tunnel: Rose Hall to Cofrin Library will be closed beginning June 30.
  5. Residence Life: Fire lane between Traditional Apartments and Freshman dormitories will be replaced. I don’t have a specific date yet.
  6. Residence Life: New fiber cabling installed in the Traditional Apartments, Community Center, and Maintenance Shop.

Sheboygan Campus receives funding for ash tree removal

Alliant Energy has provided a $5,000 grant to the UW-Green Bay, Sheboygan County Campus to assist with the removal of dying ash trees. This was made possible by Extension Master Gardener Volunteers and their collaborative relationships within the community. The Extension Master Gardeners have also provided a memorial gift of $1,700 to help purchase replacement trees. Falling branches from dying ash trees can become a hazard to students and others on campus. Ash trees, killed by emerald ash borer, become extremely brittle and can easily break as they decline. Replacing dead ash trees will also result in a healthier ecosystem. Ash trees with little die back or still appearing healthy can be treated with insecticides to provide emerald ash borer control.

 

Road construction reminder, Green Bay Campus

Starting Monday, July 22, 2019 there will be construction on the section of road intersecting the Main Entrance Boulevard up and along the Shorewood Golf Course to Theatre Hall drive. The road will remain open, but it will be reduced to one lane for curb and asphalt replacement. Please use the Main Entrance Boulevard to access the interior areas of campus. The road will be completely open in mid-August.
