Pedestrian gateway

Completion: Aug. 10, 2018 — Located where one of campus' main walking routes crosses Broomfield Road, near Celani and Thorpe residence halls on the north side and the John G. Kulhavi Events Center to the south, the gateway stands 21 feet high, 32 feet wide and features an archway emblazoned with the Central Michigan University name.

The structure's metal arch will span 20 feet between two brick-and-limestone pillars, each six feet wide at the base. The bottom edge of the arch will be 17 feet from the ground at its highest point, and the north and south sides of the top of each pillar will feature the university seal on metal plaques two-and-a-half feet in diameter.

Archway construction will reroute walkers wanting to cross Broomfield to marked crossings at South Washington Street or near Saxe Hall.
