ADA Entrance Redesign Construction Project

Construction began on July 9, 2019 to redesign the entrance of the Behrakis Student Center (SC Building) located at 100 Elliott St., Haverhill, to include an ADA accessible entrance. The project started with the removal of trees and installation of temporary construction fencing.

Please Note: The Behrakis Student Center entrance off of College Avenue (closest the main college entrance) will be closed to pedestrian traffic until further notice. Please plan to use the Behrakis Student Center entrance that faces the library (A Building). It may be more convenient to park in parking lot #3 than parking lot #2 to access this entrance.

Please check back for ongoing updates.

Update: August 22, 2019

National Grid is 2-3 months out from relocating the natural gas main, which is holding up the ramp portion of the Student Center ADA Entrance project. The construction contractor (Campbell Construction) and engineering team (CGKV) have agreed to change plans and work on the parking lot and walkway portion of the project.  If this area is completed before National Grid relocates the gas line, the contractor will pull back his equipment until the job site is ready for the ramp work. When the contractor re-mobilizes, they will be given another area of the parking lot to use as their laydown area as they do not want to use the freshly paved and painted areas that they are currently using as a laydown area.
The contractor will be providing a new schedule within the next several days, which will be posted on this webpage.

Update: August 21, 2019

The ADA ramp project is still on hold pending the relocation of the natural gas line. National Grid has identified this as a main line, therefore will need the attention of National Grid’s and the State’s engineers. The lead time for this process is two to three months. This is an unfortunate situation but the lack of “as-built” drawings for the engineers during the design phase made identifying the exact location of this gas main very difficult. The contractor will most likely recall some of their equipment for other projects during this down time. Once National Grid has determined their course of action an update on this webpage will be provided.

Update: July 18, 2019

If you have noticed the lack of activity on the Student Center Entrance Re-design Project (Behrakis Student Center Construction) it is due to the need to relocate utility lines before moving to the next step of the project – Foundation / Footings. The contractor, Campbell Construction is working with National Grid to get these lines moved. We appreciate your patience during the construction project.
