Cooper Field Construction Impacts

Dear Members of the Georgetown Community:

Beginning this week, the University will install a perimeter construction fencing around the Cooper Field construction site. This fencing is part of the project to replace the field’s bleachers with a permanent structure to include game-day locker rooms, concessions, restrooms and a press box, as well as landscape improvements.

As a result of the fence installation, the biggest impact will be longterm pedestrian detours along West Road and in front of Regents Hall. Please be aware of the following re-routing to the area surrounding the site. A map of the construction area is also attached to this message.

Fencing will be installed along the north and west sides of Cooper Field. All of the fencing will include a screening material. 
The sidewalk on the east side from North Road to the pathway from Hariri to Yates will be fenced off. Pedestrians will be detoured to the west side via existing crosswalks.
The fence will be in the center of the existing pathway south of Hariri, leaving about 12' on the north for pedestrians and fire access. 
The existing pathway from Harbin to Hariri will be closed. To go from Harbin to Hariri/Yates, pedestrians will need to use the pathway closest to Regents, then make a left onto the east-west pathway above.  

From start to completion, the fence installation will take about two weeks. When completed, the fencing work will totally separate the construction site from the adjacent areas in use. 

We appreciate your patience during this construction period.
