UNT Facilities works on beautifying north campus entryway

An artist rendering of the updated entryway shows improved signage and landscaping. The work is expected to be done in late fall 2018 or early spring 2019.

UNT is reinforcing its commitment to a beautified, walkable campus and installing a new entryway on the north side at Avenue C and Hickory Street. When complete, there will be two monuments at the Avenue C entry, and updated landscaping, sidewalks and irrigation.

The project was timed to occur while the city is working on Hickory Street from Avenue C to Avenue B so that there would be no extra delay to pedestrians and vehicle traffic. The city’s project includes replacement of damaged concrete, removing old asphalt from Hickory Street and installing new asphalt. The city project is expected to last until Jan. 2, weather permitting.

The new UNT entryway is on a similar timeline. During this time, there will be gas powered machines and trucks in use. There may be some noise during concrete removal. The area will be closed off with construction fencing. The project cost is $85,106.
