  • Army Corps of Engineers Project (Friday, January 9, 2015)

    For over 20 years,  the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been conducting clean-up operations to remove World War I materiel discovered at various locations on or near the American University main campus and throughout the Spring Valley neighborhood.  

    On December 1, 2014, the Army Corps is scheduled to resume excavation activities along Glenbrook Road, which parallels the southern border of AU’s campus.  This phase of the work is anticipated to take a year to complete.  The University wants to ensure that everyone knows the excavation is taking place and is prepared to take appropriate actions in the unlikely event of an emergency.

    For more information about the Army Corps Project and the shelter-in-place safety measures to be followed in case of an emergency, please click on the links below:
