Colorado State Moves Forward in Flood Recovery Efforts as Two More Buildings are Partially Opened

Two more buildings on campus were partially opened today–the Music Building and Johnson Hall–as Colorado State crews moved ahead with flood recovery efforts to ensure classes will start on Aug. 25.

All told, Colorado State has more than 600 workers making the necessary clean-up, repairs and renovation following the flood that hit campus last week. Eight Buildings remain closed.

The basement of the Music Building will remain closed while crews continue work, but the first and second floors are now opened. At Johnson Hall, the first floor will remain closed while crews continue recovery work, but the top two floors of the building will be open.

"There’s a lot of work still to do, but its gratifying to see this kind of continued, steady progress," said Bill Boss, recovery project coordinator.
