Months after a car crashed into the fence adjacent to Whitehead Hall at Brooklyn College, repair efforts are finally underway.

“Repairs on the fence near Whitehead began last week,” Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration Joseph Giovannelli said in a statement to The Excelsior. “Our contractors started with repairing and reinforcing the foundation and continue to work on installing the new section.”  

Students and faculty members were concerned about the long delay in beginning repair on the fence.

“We expect them to complete work within the next two weeks,” Giovannelli said, providing a timetable for the completion of the construction. With no comments on the extent of the work that will be done, the students can expect major construction on Campus Road for the majority of October.

With the project being held up by insurance adjustment issues to begin the semester, the construction provides relief for those who were concerned for the students’ safety and the beauty of the campus, one of its most enticing qualities.
