The first phase of the Veterinary Medical Center's Enhancement and Expansion project began on August 20, with the official groundbreaking ceremony taking place on September 5, 2014. The anticipated timeline for this phase is August 2014 - Dcecember 2015, and includes the construction of the new clinical office building, small animal intensive care unit, two dog-walking areas and a courtyard.
- Coffey Road will be closed south of Vernon L. Tharp St. for the remainder of the project. Access to the parking lot will be limited to the Vernon L. Tharp St. entrance.
- Five parking spots within the fenced area on Coffey Road will be unavailable. All other parking is unaffected.
- The construction workers park off-site and are transported to the college; this will not affect any of the faculty/staff/student parking spaces.
- The Coffey Road (Subway) entrance to the VMC will remain open during the project.
