New Staff Passageway to Bypass Construction Site

In an effort to improve construction site safety and positively impact the project schedule and budget, the pedestrian walkway along 45th Street is now closed. Employees are asked to bypass the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center project site by following the passageway from the Durham Outpatient Center (DOC) to Munroe-Meyer Institute (MMI) as outlined below. Directional signage has been posted to help navigate. Provisions have been made to accommodate MMI patients formerly using Lot 2 with supplemental parking and valet service.

Pedestrian access along 45th Street is anticipated to remain closed through October.

Fourth Floor Elevator Lobby and Hallway – Closing

Starting on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 and continuing through Tuesday, September 24, 2013, UNMC Facilities will be installing new carpet in the 4th floor corridors of Wittson Hall as shown on the attached plan.  All work will take place between the hours of 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM each night to minimize the inconvenience to Faculty, Staff and Students.

Between the hours of 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM each night, corridor access will be restricted within the areas identified for the work activities on that date.  It is recommended that pedestrian traffic to the Sorrell Center between 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM on these dates use the outside 42nd Street doors.  Only the 4th Floor is involved in this interruption.

If anyone has questions regarding this closure, please contact Nick Combs at 402-559-5292 as soon as possible. Since it is vital that everyone working in the building be aware of the corridor closure, please mention it to your colleagues.
