A UNCG piping replacement project this summer will involve the replacement of existing steam pipes that provide heating and hot water to the campus.
As the existing steam pipes age, they start to develop leaks, and they need to be systematically replaced. This summer, the existing pipes from the south side of Spring Garden Street to Mossman Building are being removed and replaced with new pipes. The work is just getting started, and should complete in early August. Due to the fact that the steam pipes cross Forest Street, Facilities will be closing Forest Street from the intersection of Spring Garden Street to EUC during construction. All parking on this section of Forest Street will be taken out of service, with only delivery trucks to EUC and contractor vehicles and equipment allowed into the area.
A temporary hot water heater is being installed in two metered parking spaces on the west side of Mossman Building so that the building will continue to have hot water during construction.
