GX Resumes at Homewood; Levering Market Affected

Johns Hopkins Gazette Online Edition

The commencement tent at Homewood was still coming down on Friday when workers began erecting construction fences in the nearby areas around Hodson, Garland, Barton, Latrobe, Ames, Gilman, the Glass Pavilion and Levering. By the end of October, the asphalt areas will have been transformed into parklike plazas.

With GX2 in full swing, anyone who works at or visits the Homewood campus is likely to be affected. Vehicular traffic patterns have been changed, and throughout most of the summer, pedestrians will have to take some long detours to cover some fairly short distances.

Even with detours set up, getting into Levering would be difficult for food delivery crews, so the Marketplace at Levering will be closed for the summer. Dining Services is opening an alternative location at the Mattin Center, serving freshly brewed coffee, bagels, muffins, danish, sandwiches, salads, bagged snacks, bottled beverages, desserts and fresh fruit. Starting today, May 28, this "summer home" for the Marketplace will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The location is the former home of the Mattin cybercafe, facing the courtyard.

The best way to keep up with construction alerts is to receive the GX newsletter by e-mail. To subscribe, send an e-mail message to Leave the subject line blank. The text of the message should be: subscribe gx Subscriber's Name (for example: subscribe gx Jane Doe). The message should be sent from the account to which the subscriber wants GX messages sent.
