Construction Updates:

The Lee Drain Building will be undergoing a major renovation of its first floor beginning November 10, 2020. The renovation is expected to last until June 2021. Access for individuals with disabilities will be impacted during this timeframe. During the renovation, all first floor entrances will be closed and the elevator will also terminate at the second floor.
