Media Advisory: North Overpass ribbon-cutting

A ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 9, will mark the completion of major repairs to the north overpass that links Southern Illinois University Carbondale's east campus housing areas to the central campus. Repairs to the overpass, which spans U.S. Highway 51, included replacement of the concrete walkway and Plexiglas panels. Speakers during the brief ceremony, set for the west side of the overpass (near Anthony Hall) will include Chancellor Walter V. Wendler, Catherine A. Hagler, executive director of administration, and Joseph Robinson, president of the Residence Hall Association. Reporters and photographers are welcome to attend.
