Barnard College Update - Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2016

Dear Claremont resident:

As we we mentioned in last week's update, we have finished the rock excavation of the site and as a result, will be removing some of the large pieces of equipment used during this phase. We were advised this morning that the first of this equipment will be removed tomorrow morning, Sept. 1 at approximately 4 a.m. We have asked our contractor to make this operation as efficient as possible.

We sincerely apologize for any disruption caused by this early morning work.  As we have mentioned in the past, the Department of Transportation requires that overweight equipment entering or exiting Manhattan via bridges and tunnels be transported during the overnight hours.

Construction Schedule

Our schedule will continue to be weekdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.


For general questions and comments, please email me at

If you have an urgent issue that needs to be addressed immediately, please email during regular work hours, or call Barnard Public Safety at 212/854-3362 outside of regular work hours.

You can also find our overall construction plan and specific construction-related FAQs on our website.

Thank you.
