More destruction in Burrowes, and we expect to see the north knuckle coming down soon with work on the south knuckle to then begin.

Chris Hort provided the following report (and see the attached photos that show the different stages of demolition and cleanup on the different floors.)

From Chris:

The project schedule is being met.  Work on the Pattee Mall area is in full swing.  This area will be cleaned up around August 1st in preparation for start of fall semester, and the site fencing on the Sparks side of the Mall will get shifted back toward Burrowes, opening most of the Mall again.
