ATTENTION: Please be advised that beginning Monday, October 28th, the Indianapolis campus’ elevator modernizations are scheduled to begin for the two passenger cabs! We will do one elevator at a time and each one will take approximately 10-12 weeks to complete. During this process, we ask that you please use the freight elevator and the open elevator cab while the modernizations are being done. We apologize for any inconvenience during this process but it will be well worth it once the cabs are completed!
