Morgan State University recently announced it will begin demolition of the Montebello EWing, Morgue, Boiler Plant and Garage. These buildings are located near Parking Lots Y and Z, to the south of the Montebello Building.

On or about the week of May 9, 2013 fencing was placed at the perimeter of the buildings to be demolished. Hazardous material abatement will commence on or about the week of May 13, 2013. A Hazardous Material Abatement Plan has been submitted to the University and all abatement will be completed in accordance with OSHA, USEPA, and COMAR regulations. Buildings under going abatement will have all openings/ducts covered to avoid contamination of outside air and adjacent structures.  Pedestrian and Vehicular flows of traffic will receive minimal impact.

A temporary ADA ramp will be constructed to the north side of the Alumni House during the demolition of the tunnel. Additionally, there will be contractor parking of approximately 12 cars at the far south end of Lot Y.

The demolition project is projected to be complete by mid-November.
