Portion of Morris Library sidewalk to close

by Christi Mathis

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- A portion of the south sidewalk at Morris Library on the Southern Illinois University Carbondale campus will be closed next week. Crews will be installing a new sidewalk as part of the library’s expansion and renovation project.

The work will require closing the portion of the sidewalk that extends east from the south entrance, toward Faner Hall, Monday through Wednesday, Aug 4-6. When that sidewalk replacement project is complete, workers will replace the sidewalk section to the west of the south entrance, resulting in its closure for two to three days.

The south entrance of Morris Library will remain open during the construction work.
