is likely what the project planners and construction bosses are saying about the University Plaza Project. Things were looking pretty good a few weeks ago in terms of meeting their end-of the-month deadline. Throw in a couple of weeks with days of heavy rain and that “we’re gonna make it” feeling washes away like mud down the storm sewer. It sounds like they are going to need to push back the opening of the loop road and parking garage a couple of weeks, hopefully not much more. They’d started the landscaping and put in some small oak trees on the east side of University Blvd., but Sunday night’s storm blew many of the saplings over (they were staked and wired in place, so that gives you an idea of how hard it blew). In the next few weeks they are planning to bring back some of the big trees they’d moved early in the project. The forms are in for the sidewalk on the west side of the boulevard, but some of the areas that were starting to look like they were ready for sod now look like a swamp buggy pit. The Parking Office has been contacting people who were on the Admin Garage waiting list, to see who was interested in spots in the new garage. That’s a good sign.
