Following the sanitary sewer leak on the first floor of Taylor Gym Sept. 2, the fitness center and racquet court complex will be closed for repairs beginning tomorrow, Sept. 13, according to an email sent by the Athletics, Facilities and Environmental Health and Safety departments.
The target reopening date is Sept. 25. Until then, both floors of the fitness center will remain closed. The fifth floor and group exercise classes will remain available during this time.
Additionally, a number of elliptical and cycle machines have been moved to the lobby and Hall of Fame for use, according to an email sent on Sept. 13. The third floor spin studio will also be open for use when not occupied by scheduled programs.
The basketball court and locker rooms remain open. Jacobs Pool will continue to follow its normal recreation swim hours.
While closed, the damage will be assessed “by professionals in environmental health and safety, risk management, facilities services and by the university’s insurance carrier” to determine the best solution for the issue, the email read.
The fitness center staff is researching alternative options that may be available during the closing. Any arrangements made by the fitness center staff will be announced on Taylor Gym’s website and social media.
