Construction Cuts Off Webster Ave.

Over spring break, the area enclosed by the Tuck Mall dormitory construction site has expanded northward along Tuck Drive to Webster Avenue, blocking any direct access from the main campus to the most of Webster Avenue. Now, the only direct way to get to the fraternities and sororities along Webster (where some 250 students live) is by the Rockefeller Center, a rather long detour for many. In addition, Zeta Psi fraternity’s front door, which opens onto Tuck Drive, is now inaccessible except by a temporary gravel pathway.

While probably not deliberately targeting fraternities and sororities, the construction will probably only aggravate Greek-affiliated students who feel under siege from the College.
