Underground freshmen facility might not open until spring 2002 instead of next fall
Construction of the ILC, originally slated for completion next May, is more than two months behind schedule and will likely not be completed in time for freshmen to use next fall, UA construction officials said yesterday.
Brian Dolan, University of Arizona construction project manager for the Integrated Learning Center, said a few surprises along with the complexity of the project are the primary causes behind the delay.
"This is the first time we've ever done something like this underground," he said following a one-hour tour attended by UA President Peter Likins and about 20 other people.

The man accused in the February stabbing of a gay UA student is being evaluated at a state mental hospital to determine if he is competent enough to stand trial.
Gary Grayson, 37, was charged with attempted first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated assault for the Feb. 6 stabbing of Zach Hansen, a University of Arizona philosophy junior.
However, Grayson's trial has been stayed until at least January, pending the outcome of a mental health evaluation, said Pima County prosecutor Sue Eazer.
