Construction delays near Roble Field

Construction of the new Arrillaga Outdoor Education and Recreation Center begins this week with the excavation and removal of soil from the construction site, which is located at the west end of Roble Field. Drivers should expect slight delays along Santa Teresa Street over the next five weeks, as dump trucks enter and exit the site. Four parking spaces along the field will remain closed during construction. The trucks are expected to deliver about 70 loads of excavated soil a day to SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, which recently announced plans to build the Arrillaga Family/SLAC Sports Center. The dump trucks will travel along Campus Drive West, Stock Farm Road and Sand Hill Road, entering SLAC through its Main Gate.
