To protect the newly planted grass now taking root in portions on the North Campus lawn, temporary fencing will remain in place until approximately June 15.
The North Campus Quad turf restoration project, supported by a partnership with UGA and the UGA Athletic Association, aims to enhance the lawn, which was suffering from compacted soil and poor drainage.
In recent weeks, sod was planted on two sections of the quad as part of the project. Those sections will remain closed to pedestrian traffic until the sod is established.
Future phases of the project will include restoring the remainder of the North Quad lawn as well as the South Quad lawn. Scheduling for those phases has not been finalized, but will be planned to have a minimal impact on campus.
The restoration project is not expected to interfere with football tailgating activities in the fall.
