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.
