FPL Planned power outage - November 11, 2013

 Florida Tech participates in a program offered by Florida Power and Light that provides electrical utility cost savings for us in excess of $200,000 per year. In exchange, Florida Tech agrees to allow FPL to disrupt electrical service on our main distribution loop during emergency periods where sufficient power cannot be generated to fulfill the demand in our area. If no "load-control" event occurs during the calendar year, the agreement filed with the Public Utilities Commission requires a test outage of one-hour duration be performed in November of that particular year.

 We have been fortunate this year in not having been faced with an emergency load-control event, thus, we are required to allow a one-hour test outage. This outage is scheduled to occur Monday, November 11, 2013, beginning at 7:00 AM and ending at 8:00 AM. Only those buildings on the main electrical distribution loop will be affected. Facilities included on the main loop distribution system are as follows:

Pedestrian Connector - Monday, December 19, 2011

The Facilities Operations Department is pleased to announce the beginning of another phase of improvement for the South Campus - the parking lot between the new Aquatic Center and the Olin Quad.  This improvement includes the construction of a pedestrian connector across the parking lot, as well as traffic calming and landscape enhancements.  During construction, it will be necessary to close certain zones within the parking lot to both pedestrian and vehicular traffic.  This will be done in phases in an effort to minimize inconvenience to the campus community. 

  • Phase-1:  The center north-bound lane will be closed until work in the two red clouded areas is complete.
  • Phase-2:  The center north-bound lane will be re-opened and the western south-bound lane will be closed until work in the blue rectangular area is complete. 

Further up-dates and actual parking lot closing dates will be forthcoming as the final planning and permitting are completed.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we ask for your help in keeping the areas safe for both the campus community and the construction force that is working to improve our university.
