May 31, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources


Please be advised that the following elevators will be out of service, one at a time for approximately two months each, for control upgrade. The new controls will be more reliable, more efficient, and provide service for the next 30+ years:

  • Pedestrian travel use the East Staff or Visitor Elevators
  • Modify delivery schedules when possible to non-peak times (nights, early mornings)
  • Do not use the Visitor Elevators for Cart Transport
  • Plan your travel/work to minimize elevator use
