Critical repairs to the steam system necessary to ensure reliable operations this winter will begin Saturday August 8th at 11 AM and continue until Saturday August 15th at 11 AM. There will be three areas of work. One at the East side of the Rensselaer Union where an expansion loop will be installed and the existing manhole worked on. Either side of Hall Hall will have work inside of the existing manholes where anchoring systems will be repaired. The Rensselaer Union work will be barricaded for safety reasons. The barricade may be in place for up to one month. John Singleton is the project manager.
