DOC Circle Drive to Close Sundays

Construction and Renovation  

As part of an ongoing project to build a skywalk connecting the Durham Outpatient Center (DOC) with the Lot 50 parking structure across Emile Street, the DOC circle drive and a section of Emile Street from the circle drive to 45th Street will be closed for the next four Sundays:

  • April 26
  • May 3
  • May 10
  • May 17

The work that requires the closure may not take all day, and construction teams will re-open the drive and the street as soon as possible. The work is being done on Sundays to minimize the impact to patients, visitors and staff during busier weekday times. During the closure, the Lot 2 parking structure adjacent to the DOC will only be accessible from the 45th St. entrance. Lot 50, across Emile St., will be available for patient and visitor parking during the circle drive closure. Anyone crossing Emile Street will cross on the east end of the circle, closest to the Diabetes Center.

Emile Street Lane Closures

West of the circle drive, Emile Street will also have two lane closures. The driving lane closest to the Lot 2 parking structure (adjacent to the DOC) is expected to be closed through May 8. The lane will also be closed on Emile Street between 45th Street and Saddle Creek Road (behind the Durham Research Tower II) from April 20 – May 8. This is part of a project to install new hot water pipes. The sidewalk closest to DRC II will also be closed until May 1, but pedestrians can use the sidewalk on the opposite side of the street. Each lane closure will be clearly marked and the street will be open.
