SHAWN OLSTEIN ’22

The Gates Quad has been blocked off to pedestrians due to construction since the start of the semester. According to Trinity’s Associate Vice President of Construction, Facilities, and Operations Tom Fusciello, the College is replacing the underground steam pipes connecting buildings. Pipes such as these run all over campus and are the primary source of heat in most buildings. When the steam pipes become worn down and old, they have to be replaced before they break, or the buildings they are connected to may lose heat. Fusciello added, “the project is expected to be completed by Nov. 1. Future projects that may impact other regions of campus are being discussed and evaluated.”
