Elevators in the Cathedral

This should not drastically affect access to the 26th floor, but I thought you'd like to know:

Re: Elevator Service
As you may be aware, elevator car J is currently out of service. Unfortunately, the elevator requires unexpected repairs requiring significant time for completion. Due to the age of the equipment, a major part must be fabricated. At this time, we estimate that the elevator will be out of service through mid- October, 2007.
In an effort to minimize waiting times and inconvenience for passengers, we will institute several operational changes beginning Monday, August 27.
· Until the J car can be placed back in service, Cars E and G will no longer be dedicated to freight use. Both cars will be placed in automatic service for passenger use. Please note that the call buttons for both the E and G cars are located within the door jambs of the elevators, not on the corridor walls. Special signage will be placed near the cars to notify users of the call button locations.
· Major freight deliveries will be restricted to off-peak hours. All deliveries requiring more than an average sized dolly should be made prior to 7:00 a.m. or after 5:00 p.m.
· Departments planning office moves requiring the use of the elevator should make advance arrangements by contacting Phil Hieber at extension 4-9546.
· Special circumstances may require that the E car be placed temporarily on attendant service at times. However, we will make every effort to minimize attended operation during this period.
We hope these procedures will provide the best possible service during this period. We are doing everything we can to ensure that the work on the J car is completed as quickly as possible. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Phil Hieber at extension 4-9546. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
