Exterior light work will continue

Question

Today is the first time I have seen the new street lights on, and I think they look great. They create a very safe and welcoming atmosphere, especially coming up Thompson Drive. Will other exterior lights around campus eventually be upgraded?

Response

Thank you for noticing the new lights. They were a joint two-year project between UAF and the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities. UAF is now designing new exterior lighting for the Moore-Bartlett-Skarland residence hall complex, Constitution Plaza, the Administrative Services building on College Road, the Aurora Warehouse on Marika Street, the Forestry Building on campus and the Taku parking lot. a
