Construction Notice Jan. 25, 2019: 188 Hooper
Posted January 25, 2019, 2:39 PM Updated January 29, 2019, 7:43 AM
Construction on and around the 188 Hooper housing project is underway. Part of this work involves moving various utilities, including the overhead power lines, underground—which means removing utility poles and improving streets surrounding our campus. Streetscape improvements are a critical piece of CCA’s unification initiative and transformation to a more connected and residential campus, and CCA has been working closely with the city and with our neighbors to improve the safety of our streets and to make them more pedestrian friendly.
This work necessitates both temporary (a matter of weeks) and more permanent (until the project is complete in 2020) impacts; please be aware of your surroundings, read all posted signage, and/or follow directions from construction personnel.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Streetscape improvements will take place in segments over the next 6-8 weeks in order to minimize impact on traffic and pedestrian flow. Folks working in 184 Hooper Street (GC 1)—which houses the MFA Design Studios, Grad offices, and GC classrooms—the Nave (along the Hooper Street side), and 80 Carolina can expect loud noise during this time.
All community members on the San Francisco campus can expect workers on site; changes to parking, sidewalks, and crosswalks; and street closures. Please read all posted signage and/or follow directions from construction personnel.
CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE AND IMPACT
(all dates and times are subject to change):
January 2019: started construction of the new student housing facility; street parking highlighted in red on the map below will no longer be available until the project is complete in 2020, while street parking in yellow will have varying degrees of availability over the next 6-8 weeks while streetscape work is ongoing
Into late February: continuation of streetscape work on and around the project that will impact parking availability and pedestrian paths in the area; please be aware of your surroundings, read all posted signage, and/or follow directions from construction personnel
Week of February 11: target date to start installing piles; piles will be drilled vs. hammered (known as auger cast piles or "DDP"), so we do not anticipate the pile installation will be any louder than current work on the site
August 2020: target date for student move-in to new student housing facility

Regular updates will be sent out via email, posted on the CCA new campus portal, and posted on-site.
