This page will provide weekly updates throughout construction.
The Construction site will be operational this Saturday, September 27th.
Please be advised that Roseland Street will be closed from Mass Ave. to the entrance to the rear parking lot of University Hall on next Friday, October 3rd from approximately 7:00 AM until 6:00 PM.
The purpose of the street closure is to lift mechanical equipment to the studio building roof top. For Friday, Frost Street will be a 2 way street allowing traffic in both directions. Roseland Street will be open to local traffic from Beacon Street to Frost St. and to the University Hall rear parking lot entrance. Additionally, traffic will be able to go through the back parking lot of University Hall and out the north side of the building to Mass Ave. Parking in the rear of University Hall will continue to be accessed from Roseland off of Beacon Street and from Mass Ave. on the north side of the building. Additional Lesley Public Safety staff will be on site to keep traffic flowing smoothly though the lot.
Further information will be provided on Wednesday with a mid-week update.
Also, please be advised that the Roseland Street Pocket Park, which is a separate project, but a requirement of the Arts Center Special Permit, is in progress and will be complete in early October. The park will be located on Roseland Street at the edge of the main parking lot behind University Hall. The project scope of work is to reconstruct and improve the landscape edge from the University Hall parking lot entrance on Roseland Street to the eastern (back) edge of the parking lot. The improvements will include new landscaping with drip irrigation system, new seating and lighting and new bike racks. The plan provides for a striped walking area to allow for more easily and safely walking from Roseland Street to the rear entrance of University Hall. The entire parking lot will also be restriped. Construction will be addressed from the parking lot side of the landscaped area and should have limited or no effect on Roseland Street traffic.
Construction updates and two-week projections of activities will be posted routinely to this page. To receive updates via email, subscribe by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
