A section of Goss Lane near Floyd Street and a section of Spellman Street near The Dental College of Georgia will be closed Thursday and Friday, Aug. 29-30, for prep work related to the construction of the new College of Science and Mathematics building on the Health Sciences Campus.

During these two days, vehicles must access Deck 4 from Goss Lane due to barricades near the deck entry. Likewise, Spellman Street access will be limited to the south end at John Wesley Gilbert Drive, as the north end will be blocked by construction.

A formal groundbreaking ceremony was held Aug. 23 to mark the beginning of construction on the new College of Science and Mathematics building. University System of Georgia Chancellor Steve Wrigley and members of the Board of Regents were among the many special guests to attend.

Construction on this $70 million project is expected to be completed in 2021.

Please Pardon Our Progress as we continue to grow Beyond Boundaries through our Campus Master Plan.
