TOWER CRANE INSTALLATION – TEMPORARY TRAFFIC IMPEDIMENTS at 41st & EMILE STREET and 40th & JONES STREET

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.

LEAVENWORTH STREET – LANE CLOSURES BETWEEN 39th STREET to 41st STREET

Starting on Thursday, December 4, and continuing until Friday, December 19th depending on weather, one lane of traffic will be closed along Leavenworth Street between 39th Street to 40th Street.  The West bound lanes will be impacted first followed by the East bound lanes.  Please use caution and follow temporary barricades and directional signage accordingly.  Access to 39th Street, 40th Street and 41st Streets will remain open at all times.

The purpose of this work is to install underground storm and sewer line connections for the future Lauritzen Outpatient Center & Fritch Surgery Center building.  Installation of these pipes will begin on the north side of Leavenworth and a traffic lane will close and then reopen as work progresses south until connections are made to city utilities on the south side of Leavenworth Street.

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.

 

CLOSURE OF 41st & DEWEY STREET

In order to plan for future campus-wide parking needs, a new multi-level parking garage will be constructed on Lot 6, directly east of the existing Lot 5 garage.  The project is part of a joint-effort between Kiewit Building Group, Leo A Daly Company, Nebraska Medicine and UNMC.

Starting tomorrow (Tuesday) November 4,  2014,  41st Street will be closed from the north side of Dewey Avenue to the south side of Harney Street. The closure will continue throughout the duration of the project (November 1, 2015). Entrance to the Administration Center parking lot will be restricted to the south drive only. Access to the residences on the east side of 41st Street will be through a temporary drive located at the northwest corner of the Administration Center lot.

If you have any questions, please contact  Tod Ringenberg  at 402-559-5627. Since it is vital that everyone working in the affected areas be advised of this,  please mention this construction activity and associated road closure to your colleagues. (Click on photo to enlarge)
