It’s official. The site fence went up last week, so the construction phase of the Babcock Hall project is now underway.

One of the immediate impacts is that the majority of parking stalls in Lot 40 behind Babcock Hall will be closed until late summer 2021. Permit holders are encouraged to check their email for more info. Departmental vehicle parking is now in the lot south of the Stock Pavilion, with access via a new driveway just to the west of the Stock Pavilion. More details about parking-related issues are also available on the UW Transportation Services website.

Check out the “before” and “after” slider below for a quick, visual reminder of what’s involved: the renovation of the Babcock Hall Dairy Plant and a three-story addition for the Center for Dairy Research.
