The final elements of the Garfield Avenue project on the UW-Eau Claire campus are scheduled to begin in early May to fully complete the redevelopment by the start of the fall semester.
The construction has been ongoing, and the final touches come in the form of a multifaceted project that includes a stone and steel gateway marking the entrance to campus, an outdoor classroom overlooking the Chippewa River, and a stone-and-water feature. These last elements, totaling over $1 million, are privately funded by lead benefactors Jon and Megan Stowe and will complement the already transformational renovations to Garfield Avenue.
“The Stowe gift will greatly enhance the Garfield Avenue redevelopment project by adding iconic features that will inspire current and future generations of Blugolds and visitors to ‘Wisconsin’s most beautiful campus,'” says Mike Rindo, assistant chancellor for facilities and university relations.
