The Anne Arundel Hall Replacement project is progressing well. With progress comes a few changes. The asphalt path behind the Parish Hall is now closed and the construction fencing has been moved out to enclose this area.

The asphalt path behind the Post Office has been widened and will be the main path of travel to and from the historic side of campus until construction is complete. Signage will be placed to facilitate travel through the area. ADA access to the historic side of campus will be via the new sidewalks along Rt. 5 to the River Center crosswalk at Trinity Church Rd. As always, be aware of your surroundings and use care in your travels. Please refer to the graphic diagram below which depicts the new walking/access areas.

The Anne Arundel Hall Construction Project consists of three separate buildings connected by bridges at the second floor level. The underground infrastructure is in place. This infrastructure includes telephone and data duct banks, electrical duct banks, domestic water distribution mains, and sanitary sewer and storm water management piping. Also in place are the building foundations. The foundations are made up of augured grout piles and pile caps or grade beams. The first floor concrete slabs are in place for the north and south buildings as well as the concrete slab for the west building. Masonry walls are up to the second floor deck level on both the north and south buildings.
