Canyon County Center Parking Lot Replacement
CWI’s Canyon County Center parking lot is receiving an update this summer. The existing parking lot at the facility had deteriorated significantly over the last few years and an entire replacement of the parking lot was required.  The State of Idaho and CWI jointly funded the project which will increase the capacity of parking available at the site by approximately 30 stalls. The project is being phased so that some parking remains available at the site at all times. ADA modifications will also be integrated into the project, increasing accessibility to the building. Completion of phase 1 of the project is anticipated to conclude by mid-July with entire project being complete for the start of the Fall 2016 semester. Thank you for your continued understanding through any inconvenience this project presents.

Math Solution Centers Construction
Space in CWI’s Nampa Campus Academic Building and Ada County Campus Pintail Center are currently being remodeled to support the College’s new Math Solution Centers. Room 116 in the Academic Building and room 1307 in the Pintail Center are being renovated to support CWI’s Math 095 course, which is the new college-level math prep course that will be introduced at CWI this fall. Each room will be outfitted with computer stations, audio/video projection equipment, break out areas, and elevated platforms to assist instruction. Construction activities will be complete before the start of the Fall 2015 semester. Watch Bert’s Alerts for more information on the new Math 095 program.

Remodel at Canyon County Center
Two classrooms are being remodeled at CWI’s Canyon County Center for use by the College’s new Law Enforcement Program. Renovation of classrooms 118 and 120 is scheduled to be complete before the start of the Fall 2015 semester. One room will be used as an exercise, tactics, and skills instruction room.  The other room contains office space and an indoor simulation range.
