Starting today and over the next two weeks, there will be increased truck traffic along Chu Road as soil is removed from the Bevatron lot. Drivers and pedestrians in the area should use caution. It is estimated that some additional parking spots will be returned when the dirt removal project is complete.
Tomorrow, from 6:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., the eastbound lane of McMillan Road in front of the SERC construction project will be closed to position a crane. Flaggers will be in place to direct traffic. Pedestrians and vehicles should use caution in this area. For questions, contact Don Beaton (x7109) or Jules Feher (x4178).
Due to the high winds forecast today’s crane operations at the SERC project have been suspended and are now rescheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 21 from 6 a.m. to approximately 3 p.m. The SERC project will be performing crane operations, which will block the eastbound lane of McMillan Road. Flaggers will be present to direct pedestrian and vehicle traffic during this period. Please use caution when traversing this area.

Patience — Stay calm and relaxed when experiencing delays.
Control Speed — Go no more than 10 mph when flaggers are present, and maintain a safe distance.
Vigilance — Stay focused on driving and avoid distractions in the car.

To accommodate an electrical cable pull for the CRT building, Lawrence Road — from near the Guest House to the intersection with Segre Road — will be closed from Monday, Dec. 16 to Jan. 14. There will be westbound traffic only on the access road between the ALS and Building 37. Drivers must use McMillan and S Road detour to reach buildings east of the Guest House. Parking in the area will also be affected. See map for details.
The final steel girder of the Computational Research and Theory facility was hoisted into place today in a “topping off” ceremony. As tradition dictates, the beam was decorated with an evergreen and American flag and signed by both the builders and some of the eventual occupants, including Kathy Yelick, Associate Lab Director for Computing Sciences. When construction is complete in early 2015, the CRT facility will house all three divisions of Berkeley Lab’s Computing Sciences, as well as NERSC’s supercomputers in a state-of-the-art data center.
