LOGAN – Beginning Monday morning at six o’clock until August, a portion of Champ Drive on the Utah State University campus will be closed for the groundbreaking and construction of the Mehdi Heravi Global Teaching and Learning Center.

The closure will start at the roundabout near the Agricultural Science Building and will end at what is now the purple parking lot directly south of Old Main.

Access to areas located further west on Champ Drive — including the David B. Haight Center — can be reached by driving up through the Aggie Parking Terrace.

The Heravi Center groundbreaking ceremony will begin at 1 p.m. March 22. The center will be built between the Ray B. West building and Old Main at what is now the purple parking lot.

A two-story, 37,700 square foot building, the new center will be home to programs in the Department of World Languages and Cultures, including the Intensive English Language Institute (IELI) and the Master of Second Language Teaching program (MSLKT).

USU Parking has notified permit holders of necessary changes.
