Crews are working diligently to complete sidewalks around the structure and expect to re-open the Rock in time for the start of the semester on Wednesday, August 22.
The Rock, located at the corner of Volunteer Boulevard and Pat Head Summitt Street, has been fenced for its own protection—and that of would-be painters—while crews performed necessary utility, sidewalk, and guttering work around the new Natalie L. Haslam Music Center.
The Natalie L. Haslam Music Center began construction in 2010. The $40 million project is expected to open in fall 2013.
