Elevator work for Abramsky Hall, Morris Hall, Theological Hall

Sign which reads - Notice, elevator out of serviceUPDATE>>>  On June 29, a Physical Plant Services elevator mechanic discovered that the passenger elevator (EL1271) in Abramsky Hall was not operational. As modernization of this equipment is set to begin on July 4 and a replacement part is not available until next week, this elevator is now out of service until further notice.

UPDATE>>> The passenger elevator (EL1261) in Morris Hall will be removed from service for modernization on Tuesday, June 27 instead of Tuesday, July 4. A separate notice will be issued when this equipment is restored to service.

Beginning on Tuesday, July 4, the passenger elevators in Abramsky Hall (EL1271), Morris Hall (EL1261) and Theological Hall (EL1031) will be removed from service while SGS Elevators modernizes all three units. Work is expected to continue until late August; however, separate notices will be issued to advise on the anticipated completion date for each unit once the crew enters into their final stage of work.
