The west end (34th Street) of Smith Walk (map below) will be closed to pedestrian traffic from Tuesday, May 27, 1997, through Friday, August 29, 1997. The closure is required to complete new site work, landscaping, and steam service for the Roy and Diana Vagelos Laboratories of the Institute for Advanced Science and Technology.
The Smith Walk entrance between the Towne Building and Hayden Hall will remain open between May 27, 1997 and August 29, 1997 except for four days at the end of June. Access to Hayden Hall during these four days will be from the 33rd Street driveway; a new phone and signage will be installed at this entrance for building access.
