Emile/Jones Street Closing

Construction Work – East of Michael Sorrell’s Loading Dock 

Starting April 7, 2014, construction will begin on Emile Street between 41st and 40th Streets.   Michael Sorrell Center’s loading dock will  remain accessible.

Grunwald Contractors will be digging up Emile Street and the sidewalks on both the north and south sides excavating for new pipe.  The work will be fenced off and will affect vehicle traffic.  For those of you that park in lots 4, 36, 39, 21, and 20, you will still be able to enter the parking lots either from 41st or 40th Streets (see map).    This work should last (approximately) 3 months.   

 This work is part of the Lozier Center for Pharmacy Sciences & Education and Center for Drug Discovery construction project.

Please use caution and observe any temporary barricades and safety fences around the  construction area.   If you have any questions, please contact  Mic Tierney  at 402-559-5261.   Since it is vital that everyone working in and around the area be informed, please mention it your colleagues.
