The Virginia Tech Board of Visitors will hold its regular quarterly meeting on Monday on the Blacksburg campus, and will consider several major construction projects.
As has become common over the past two years, overall budget discussions and a vote will be pushed to later in the year due to logistics issues, university spokesman Larry Hincker said.
Subcommittees of the board will meet on campus today and Monday, including the Building and Grounds Committee, which will discuss several construction projects.
On the building and grounds agenda are a new jumbotron scoreboard for Lane Stadium, a new U.S. 460 interchange at Southgate Drive, the reconfiguration of some campus roads to accommodate the interchange and the long-planned extension of the Virginia Tech/Montgomery Executive Airport runway, a plan to move the university’s dairy barn operation and discussions of a long-range plan to develop the north campus parking lot known as the “B-Lot” for academic and research buildings as well as a multi-modal transportation hub.
The Finance and Audit Committee will discuss a proposed $90 million overhaul of Upper Quad, the oldest section of campus and home to the university’s Corps of Cadets. That plan calls for construction of a new corps military science building and the demolition and reconstruction of two dorms.
The committee will also discuss plans to build a $5.3 million expansion of the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute. Under the proposal, the expansion would be located on leased property in the Corporate Research Center.
