$1.8 million KSU entrance project approved by Board of Regents

The state has given the OK for Kennesaw State University to revamp the front entrance to its main campus. 

The Board of Regents approved a project that would “create a well-defined, inviting entry” to the campus on Chastain Road at Frey Road in Kennesaw. 

Board members approved the $1.8-million project at its May 14 meeting. Meeting documents show $2 million in institutional funds have been set aside for the initiative.

The project would incorporate campus gateway signage next to a new front lawn. It would also grade an existing field and remove the surrounding fence, columns and trees.

A sidewalk that’s in place would be widened to enhance pedestrian safety and minor landscaping would compliment the new signage.

Jen Ryan, a University System of Georgia spokeswoman, said KSU can now move ahead to the contracting phase for design and construction. 

KSU spokesperson Tammy Demel said the school is working to determine a project timeline.
