Why did they finally redo the street in front of Murphy Hall and then almost immediately tear it up completely?
KU spokeswoman Lynn Bretz said: "Construction currently under way west of Murphy Hall involves replacement of a storm sewer line. The contractor's work requires KU to close the street. Naismith Drive, which was recently repaved, is not affected by this work, other than some minor patching to a small area of the road. The circular drive by the Murphy Hall entrance is being repaved because it is directly over the sewer line. The circular drive had NOT been repaved prior to this sewer line work. The road and drive should reopen during the second week of August."
