MacGregor Hall masonry being repaired.

Façade cracks in a twenty-foot section of masonry atop MacGregor Hall led to closing a portion of the path around Upper Lake for the near future. 

Paul Breen, director of facilities management and planning, says loose pieces of masonry were discovered recently in part of a ten-foot-high parapet wall built around the perimeter of MacGregor’s roof. A structural engineer investigated, and the area has been cordoned off.

The portion of the path around Upper Lake behind MacGregor Hall will remain closed until repairs are complete.

Residents of MacGregor may continue to use the usual entrances and exits, since the area under repair is on the Upper Lake side of the building.

Breen and Mike Buckley, assistant director of facilities management, said the work could take several weeks to complete.
