Columbus –Today, Senator Edna Brown (D-Toledo) announced the state Controlling Board has released a total of $1,835,500.00 in funding for the University of Toledo Elevator Safety Repairs and Replacement project. This funding will allow the University to replace 40 to 50 year old elevators in two buildings on the main campus.

“I was able to view the elevators scheduled to be replaced during a legislative tour of campus in October,” said Senator Brown. “Many of the elevators were installed during construction of the buildings. I am happy to see this investment, which will decrease maintenance costs and improve safety.”

The scope of work will include the replacement of three elevators in University Hall and two elevators in the Bowman-Oddy Laboratories Building. The elevators selected were identified as most in need of replacement during a campus wide assessment.
