DML roofing project begins Feb. 12th

February 8, 2018

Due to the hail storm last May, the University has authorized a re-roofing project for the Dayton Memorial Library including the removal of the existing roof and the re-installation of new roofing materials. Beginning on February 12, roofers will start the process that is expected to take about three weeks to complete. It’s possible that weather could delay the project.

There will be sidewalk closures immediately adjacent and directly south of the building, however the building’s rear entrance will remain open during most of the construction process. There may be possible temporary closure of the south entrance; we will post more updates as the project progresses.
