Barricades at Grad Towers
As part of Phase One of the Sansom Common project--expected to last through July 28--barricades are being erected on the Graduate Tower Plaza between the two towers, so that entry to Grad B will be only via 37th Street. Nichols House (Grad A) will be accessible from 36th Street and from the Chestnut Street stairway to the Plaza entrance. As construction crews prepare to demolish the plaza, Sansom Street has been blocked off as well, and a trash-bin holding area is being constructed at 37th Street.
During Phase Two, starting immediately at the completion of Phase One July 28, crews will begin work on a new utility tunnel, and on landscaping and construction of the new road to be named Steve Murray's Way (see drawing, on the cover).
