Flooring removal and replacement work

As a reminder, contractors have begun flooring removal and replacement work in the Menard Hall second floor corridor. During demolition/installation, there will be parts of the corridor that will be inaccessible for short periods of time. We are working closely with the contractors to minimize interruptions wherever possible.  We have asked the contractor to use caution tape around areas that are inaccessible for these short periods of time. We anticipate this work to last throughout July and into early August. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Tim Ervin at 217-786-9605 or at tim.ervin@llcc.edu.

Concrete work at loading dock begins today

As a reminder, contractors will be working on replacing concrete at the Menard Hall loading dock starting today. This will limit access along this drive to the back of Menard and not allow any convenient turn around at the end of the drive. We anticipate this work to be ongoing throughout June.

Please use caution and be aware of all construction traffic as you drive and walk in these areas. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Tim Ervin at 217-786-9605 or at tim.ervin@llcc.edu.
