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.

Changes to Lot 3

A portion of stalls   in Lot 3 (garage located below the Medical Sciences Building) will be used for emergency department patient parking to   replace public parking spots annexed by the expanding Fred & Pamela   Buffett Cancer Center project site. Construction is underway and expected to   be complete the week of Oct. 14.

All employees   assigned to Lot 3 should continue to park in this lot as no user will be   displaced as a result of this change. During this time, we ask all drivers to   exercise extreme caution for the safety of construction workers.

Current Lot 3 users   will use access cards to pass through the relocated parking control barrier   arm to allotted parking spots. If you are a Lot 3 user and you have misplaced   your card, please call Parking Services at 559-8580 or email unmcparking@unmc.edu to obtain a replacement.

Please direct all other questions to Mike   Faber, University of Nebraska Medical Center Facilities Management & Planning at 9-4503 or Chris Johnson, The Nebraska Medical Center Facilities   Management & Planning at 2-3292.
