Section of Southern Avenue to be CLOSED
indefinitely beginning Monday, February 11

As you may have noticed, the pedestrian bridge across Southern Avenue is taking shape. The general contractor, Flintco, has notified us that additional action is now necessary that will affect vehicular traffic on Southern Avenue. Over the next several weeks, crews will be working on the bridge above Southern Avenue and the railroad tracks, welding, pouring concrete, and installing the suspension cables. This work is scheduled to be completed by late March, at which time Southern will reopen.

Beginning next Monday, February 11, Southern Avenue will be closed indefinitely to vehicular traffic between Houston Street and Goodman Street to allow work on the bridge above Southern. Additionally, Echles Street will be closed between Southern and Spottswood. Traffic will be detoured to Patterson, Spottswood, and Goodman. Please note that this schedule could be affected by weather.

Senior Project Equipment

09-10-2008 @ 5:15pm,

Do you know what you want to do for senior projects but don't have the equipment or money to buy it? I have acquired many items over the years that can be used for EETH and CETH senior projects (see link below).

I also have a number of computers that can be used by students for senior projects in ET227a for your use in case you need software not installed on the image in the computer labs, or you need Linux or another OS.
