Project Description

Tulane University will be constructing a temporary entrance on the Freret Street side of the Howard Tilton Memorial Library (HTML). This entrance will be used during the construction of the HTML expansion project. This entrance is being installed to enhance student safety during the construction period. The project will be completed in two (2) phases. In Phase 1, the contractor will be building an ADA accessible ramp from the Freret St. sidewalk to the existing parapet and entranceway. Phase 2 will consist of replacing the single exit door with double doors and a window wall system. This will better facilitate the use of this doorway as a main entrance during the construction project. Phase 2 will be completed during the Thanksgiving break.
