(WDEF) One of the most transformational changes in the history of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is basically finished.
     For a year and a half, students had to wind their way along temporary pathways around the Lupton Library.
     Now the "Cardiac Steps" project is nearly complete.
     Only some sod replacement and repair is left.
     Cardiac Hill is now a series of sloped sidewalks with handrails stretching from Heritage Plaza to Oak Street.
     Chuck Cantrell, Associate Chancellor in University Marketing and Communications explained, "We actually made the ADA access on the hill better.  The ramps are less steep, a little more sloping.  So if you're in a wheelchair or have an accessibility issue, it's easier to climb up the hill now."
     Construction on the new UTC Library continues.
     It's expected to be finished by next spring.
