Construction will be in full swing this summer at Youngstown State University.

“This is one of the most-aggressive construction seasons we’ve had in a long time,” Richard White, YSU’s associate director of planning and construction, told trustees at a committee meeting earlier this month.

The total is $10 million including those underway, being advertised or in development.

“They aren’t big-dollar jobs, but they’re spread out,” said John Hyden, executive director of facilities.

Among the projects is completion of the Veterans Resource Center on Wick Avenue. The $1.25 million project by Adolph Johnson is expected to be done by late summer.

“We have lots of roof renovations going on across campus,” White said.
