From August 2015 through spring 2016, repairs will take place in the waterfront area between the lake and the T Building. This is to stabilize the lake slope and fix the retaining wall.
Pedestrian routes around the T Building have changed to avoid this construction work. The new routes are clearly marked. The waterfront walkway behind T building is closed.
