COLUMBIA— Burch Drive, west of Trowbridge Livestock Center at MU, will be closed starting Monday, according to a notice from MU Campus Facilities Road Information.
The stretch of road, connecting Ashland Road to East Campus Drive, will be closed until the completion of the East Campus chiller plant, located northeast of Trowbridge Livestock Center. The chiller plant is needed to provide more water capacity for facilities in MU's Southeast Gateway and East Campus, according to the notice.
The completed construction project will include a chilled water plant to help supply the chilled water loop, according to a budget document from the MU Board of Curators. The project will provide chilled water for new campus buildings and additional capacity after old chillers are removed.
Construction is expected to be completed in spring 2013.
