Duke will build a new plant to keep cool. 

Construction on Duke's third water cooling plant, or Chiller Plant No. 3, will begin in January 2019. It will be located on Anderson Street and the construction is expected to conclude in December 2020, according to a University news release.

Underground work to connect the plant to existing systems began this week. 

The utility work to install underground pipes beginning this week began the first of several parking adjustments due to the construction. 

Last Saturday, the parking lots behind apartments at Yearby Avenue and Lewis Street closed, and are expected to reopen early 2019. However, the underground pipe work will require more parking adjustments around Flowers Drive and the Sarah P. Duke Gardens. 

Other parking options will be available on Central Campus.
