Crews continue to work on project that will make way for new campus gateway

Demolition of the Administration Building at Bowling Green State University is well underway — and moving quickly.

Removal of the aging building is part of the University's plan to revitalize the western edge of the Bowling Green campus, which will be home the new Campus Gateway.

Construction on the gateway will begin in Spring 2022 and is scheduled for completion in Fall 2022. Sustainability is a key part of the project, as much of the material that comes from the Administration Building will be recycled and more trees will be planted to replace those that were removed.

Photos show the progress in the first week of demolition.
