In one section of the Lithic Lab in the basement of Flanner Hall, a half-dozen piles of chipped rock litter the floor from students learning to make obsidian tools from the Neanderthal Age. In another area, students study life during the Irish Famine through examination of pottery, coins and clay pipes unearthed last summer beside an abandoned home on an Irish island.
This lab space is the fourth that archaeologist Ian Kuijt has used in 14 years at Notre Dame – and the first in the same building as his sixth-floor office.
Starting Monday, Sept. 8, a new traffic pattern, including a 2-way road with dedicated pedestrian sidewalk, will bypass the construction area affecting St. Joseph Drive. In order to minimize disruptions to Campus traffic, a bypass road will be constructed around the Tunnel construction site to facilitate the work required to allow the tunnel to cross St. Joseph Drive.
The western third portion of the Visitor Lot located on the southeast corner of Eddy Street and Holy Cross Drive, just east of the DeBartolo Performing Art Center, will be closed beginning Saturday, May 3 at 10:00 p.m. and will remain closed indefinitely.

TUNNEL CONSTRUCTION LAUNCHES IN MARCH
Over the past several months, Notre Dame has announced the addition of several buildings to support the University’s aspiration to become a preeminent research university with a distinctive Catholic mission and an unsurpassed undergraduate education. To prepare for future construction of these new buildings, work will begin on the campus infrastructure in March to prepare the underground utilities systems for future expansion.
The time is nearing for the construction associated with the new Research Building that will be located in the parking lot east of the Hesburgh Library. The link provided illustrates the extent of the project site. The site will be fenced the last week of this month (July), and construction will begin immediately following that. Construction is anticipated to be completed in the summer of 2016. Once complete, the existing parking lot will contain approximately 400 spaces. For those that presently park in this lot, there are other lots available for your use. Those lots are D-2 South located around the Wellness Center, D-2 Middle which is north of the Wellness Center, and the newly constructed D-Bulla lot on the east edge of Campus. Additional questions related to parking should be directed to Parking Services at 574-631-5053.
This multi-story facility contains approximately 200,000 gross square feet of general laboratory space for science and engineering research. Its construction will be the start of an East Quad on campus, located just east of the Hesburgh Library.
