Lehigh’s Health, Science & Technology Building begins (25)

(25th in a series of posts on Lehigh University)

Groundbreaking for the new Lehigh Health, Science, and Technology college at the corner of Morton and Adams is imminent.

The presentation on the web link above is stunning. Savor that video.

You might remember Gadfly having his pee warmed by Lehigh’s construction of three new buildings on parking areas, resulting in a loss of over 500 parking spaces, pushing some parking off campus.

Lehigh now has a parking lot for faculty and staff in the area of Founder’s Way and 3rd St. There will be bus service between the lot and campus. Maybe it has already started.

(You will have already noticed the big Lehigh Transit buses on Mechanic St. turning south [up] New St.)

Reminds me that I never did find out where the lower-paid contract workers (cafeteria, cleaning, grounds staff) were accommodated in the parking reorganization.

And reminds me that we need to talk about the Lehigh plan in potencia for closing Packer Ave between Brodhead and Adams for a pedestrian mall.

As well as the refurbishing of the entrance into Lehigh from 3rd St. at the bridge to Campus Square at New and Morton.

Lehigh — on the move!

  1. I am more concerned that they are not climate neutral. It’s 2019 and global warming & climate change have reached the crisis level—and a major Bethlehem institution is still ignoring the need to move to climate neutral buildings. Shame on them for their willingness to threaten the lives of their students & future generations.
