    Concrete sidewalks were placed this past week for the new entry plaza.

    dec-9-8

    Plaza as seen from the steps to Girard Hall

    dec-9-7


    Another feature of the Plaza. I would assume a sitting area or some sort of monument.

    dec-9-6

    The old sun dial from 1916 rescued from the old rose garden and placed in the new rose garden.

    dec-9-9

    Will. Vermillion hall and the other building next to it be renovated as well. Those are two of the saddest looking building I have seen on a major university. They can really do a lot with that location with it next to the swamp.

    Vermilion Hall and Lafayette hall are the OLD Corona and OLD Olivier halls (commonly referred to as the eyesore buildings). along with Guillory Hall (currently being used for food service) will be demolished.

    Looks like they are almost finished with just a little clean up and landscaping to do. Just in time to get it smashed by the Mardi Gras crowds.

    Looking back to Girard Hall with East University Ave to the rear of the camera. Martin Hall to the left.

    Because one of the new residence halls is named Corona Hall. They renamed Olivier Hall to Vermilion Hall because the new parking garage is named Olivier Parking Tower. It really doesn't matter what the old buildings will be called because they will be demolished soon after the Student Union renovation is completed.

    They started marking the bike paths on St. Mary. The truck below is a Thermoplastic Pavement marking rig. They melt plastic and place it on the pavement to make a stripe. The plastic is very hot and it is another fairly dangerous piece of equipment to be around. It takes a steady had at the steering wheel to get straight lines.



    Before the plastic cools they distribute glass beads over the hot plastic. The beads stick to the plastic after it cools and makes the stripes more reflective.

    I tried to get a photo of the glass beads without getting run over by traffic. I don't think they showed up too well



    some parts of the country mix recycled glass in their asphalt. The pavement sparkles at night.

    This is a better photo of the glass beads, they are to the right of the stripe and they look like powder.
