Dependent upon weather, starting on Monday, March 2 and continuing through Saturday, March 7, the tower crane for the Lauritzen Outpatient Center & Fritch Surgical Center will be erected.  During this time as this work proceeds it will be necessary to move semi-trucks and smaller assist cranes through the two above referenced intersections, which will impede street traffic for short durations of time.  During these times, there will be signal persons stationed at these intersections to help direct traffic.  In addition, at times semi-trucks with crane & boom sections will be staged in the east lane of 41st street.

Please use caution when moving through these areas or if possible consider an alternative route.

If you should have any questions, please contact Paul Straub at 402-559-4502.  Please share this information with others that may need to know.

Annex 14 Parking Lots 56 and 57

Construction Work                                                                                             

A section of Lot 56 will be blocked off from Tuesday, February 24, 2015, through Sunday, March 1, 2015. This is for the removal of the damaged awning on the west side of Lot 56. The entrance to Lot 56 on Farnam Street (south side) will also be closed during this construction. The lot will still be accessible from the Douglas Street (north side) entrance.

A few stalls on the east side of Lot 57 may also be affected by this construction, so please be conscious of any stalls that may be barricaded. The entrances to Lot 57 will not be affected.

If you are unable to find a parking space in Lot 56 or Lot 57 during this time, please park in Lot 27 (southwest corner of Saddle Creek and Farnam).

If you have any questions, please contact George M at 402-238-8211 or email him at gmiedl@unmc.edu. Since it is vital that everyone working in and around and/or uses parking lot 56 and 57 be aware of the closure, I ask that you mention it to your colleagues.

 Please use caution when walking or driving in and around this area.  (click on photo to enlarge)
