As part of the Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Neuroscience Research Building construction project, workers will move the Wilson Court bungalows to a new location May 30–June 1.
The 1920s-era bungalows, at the southeast corner of Wilson Avenue and Del Mar Boulevard, will move two blocks to a site near the northeast corner of Catalina Avenue and San Pasqual Street.
The bungalows will be moved by truck between the hours of 4 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Wednesday, May 30 (three buildings); Thursday, May 31 (two buildings); and Friday, June 1 (two buildings). During these times, Wilson Avenue will be closed between Del Mar Boulevard and San Pasqual Street, and Caltech's two Wilson Avenue parking structures will be inaccessible.
During the move:
- Trucks will travel south on Wilson Avenue to San Pasqual Street, deposit each bungalow at its new location, then return to campus via Catalina Avenue.
- Building relocation will stop at 6 a.m., and Wilson Avenue will reopen to normal traffic.
- Bungalow renovation at the new site will occur from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily, and Wilson Avenue will remain open.
When the renovations are completed, the bungalows will once again serve as campus housing.
