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.

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.
