Crews begin work on UI’s Administration Building

Work is underway to protect the historic architecture and improve safety at the University of Idaho’s Administration Building.  The UI is teaming up with the state division of public works on the 2.3 million dollar project.  Work began this week to remodel and install safety improvements in the foyer.  The admin building foyer will be closed during the work which is scheduled to run through mid-October.
