40th Street and Emile/Jones Street Closing

Lot 21 Entrance Blocked

Starting July 14, 2014, 40th and Jones Street will be closed for approximately 45 days.  The contractor (General Excavating) will be digging around the manhole on 40th Street at the Jones Street intersection.  For those of you that park in lot 21 you will not be able to enter the parking lot from 40th Street (see map).    

This work is part of the Lozier Center for Pharmacy Sciences & Education and Center for Drug Discovery construction project.    As the project progresses I will keep you informed.

Please use caution and observe any temporary barricades and safety fences around the construction area.   If you have any questions, please contact  Mic Tierney at 402-559-5261.   Since it is vital that everyone working in and around the area be informed, please mention it your colleagues.
