Facilities Briefs


In order to properly install new electrical ducts to serve the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer from the East Utilities Plant, it will be necessary to close a portion of 41st Street from the north side of Dewey Avenue to the south side of the driveway entrances to Lot #6 and the Administration Center.  Note that none of the entrances/exits to Lot #6 or the Administration Center parking lot will be blocked.  However, vehicular and pedestrian traffic will not be able to pass north on 41st Street from Dewey Avenue while work is in progress.

This closure will occur starting on Tuesday, September 30th through Thursday, October 2nd, 2014 from approximately 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day.

If you have any questions, please contact  Dan Michalak at  402-55 9-5048  or Doug Stringfield at 402-552-3460.  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)

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.
