There is currently a bike/golf cart lane between the two buildings. The sidewalk on the west side of the Science Library. On the other side, e.g. (the east side of Koffler) between the building and the mall, there is a dirt area and big rocks where people are forced to walk because walking on the bike lane will cause someone to get run by a bike or golf cart. This is a busy and transited area especially when classes are back in session and more than once I have seen a bike or a golf cart almost run over someone because they were walking on that lane. The side walk on the library side is always full and people typically walk on both sides. In order to make the flow easier, a sidewalk between Koffler and the sidewalk that faces the mall towards the north of the building would solve the problem. In addition, a ramp would meet accessibility requirements.

Thanks to Chris Kopach, Assistant Vice President, Facilities Management, for providing the following response on behalf of the Facilities Management team:
The sidewalk east of Koffler Building has been extended north to the ramp on the main sidewalk along the south side of the mall.
