Lot 21 Entrance Blocked

Starting July 14, 2014, 40th and Jones Street will be closed for approximately 45 days.  The contractor (General Excavating) will be digging around the manhole on 40th Street at the Jones Street intersection.  For those of you that park in lot 21 you will not be able to enter the parking lot from 40th Street (see map).    

This work is part of the Lozier Center for Pharmacy Sciences & Education and Center for Drug Discovery construction project.    As the project progresses I will keep you informed.

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.

40TH ST AND JONES CLOSURE 7-14-14

Update: Metropolitan Utilities District (M.U.D.) Work – Emile and 45th Streets Impacted

M.U.D has begun the installation of new utilities at Emile and 45th Streets to serve the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center.

Work in front of the Durham Outpatient Center circle drive is now underway resulting in vehicular lane restrictions along Emile Street. Drivers exiting the circle drive are required to turn eastbound and pedestrians are required to use the Emile Street pedestrian walkway between Lot 50 and Durham Outpatient Center, shifted just east of its former location.

Concurrently, M.U.D. crews are also working at the intersection of 45th and Emile Streets. Unforeseen existing utility connections require more extensive work in 45th Street than originally anticipated.The west lane along 45th Street is now restricted for this work, however, access to and from Green/Lot 2 Visitor Parking will be maintained at all times. Pedestrian traffic between Lot 50 and Durham Research Centers is required to use the east walkway of 45th Street.

Dependent upon water testing results, work in both areas may extend into the second week of July.

During construction, flagmen will be on site to direct traffic. Drivers and pedestrians are asked to exercise extreme caution and pay attention to posted signage, as lane restrictions and traffic direction changes will be ongoing.
