Masonry Work Begins at the Blackstone Power Plant During the Week of May 23

The University’s contractor has started work on the Blackstone Power Plant located at the intersection of Memorial Drive and Western Avenue. The project scope includes replacing the plant’s windows, making façade repairs, and fortifying the building against weather impacts.

Please be advised that masonry work is expected to begin on the Western Ave side of the building during the week of Monday, May 23.

Once this work begins, neighbors can expect that this work will generate noise due to the use of construction equipment, lifts, and power tools between the work hours of 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Signage is in place to direct pedestrians to the opposite sidewalk on Western Ave and police details will be requested when needed to support certain activities. Western Ave and Memorial Drive will remain open to vehicular traffic throughout the project.
