Road closure, helicopter noise on Stanford campus Monday

 

Stanford University has issued an advisory that Campus Drive East and part of Bowdoin Street will be intermittently closed between 9 and 10:30 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 11, when a helicopter delivers mechanical equipment for four residential buildings in the Cowell Houses complex.

Helicopter and flight noise is expected to occur between 8 a.m. and noon while the helicopter is in the area, which mostly contains sorority houses. The landing area is in the central lawn among the Cowell Houses. Members of the Stanford community and the public should avoid the area during that time, university officials said.

To ensure public safety, traffic guards will be posted in the area to block, monitor and guide vehicle and pedestrian traffic.

The equipment will be installed in the mechanical rooms of the buildings as part of Stanford's project to convert more than 150 campus buildings from steam to hot water under the comprehensive Stanford Energy System Innovations program (SESI). Stanford expects to complete all phases of the hot-water conversion in 2015. SESI is a collection of projects designed to meet the university's long-term energy needs while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption.

Thanks Stanford for planning and communicating this to us in Palo Alto; specially College Terrace residents who live next to the campus.

Stanford gets an A+ on this planning.

Respectfully

Thanks for the info. We can plan accordingly. Please do this more often. It would have been great to know about the resurfacing on Oregon over the weekend as we got caught in terrible traffic that we could have avoided if we had known in advance.
