Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center – UpDate: Week of February 24

Construction of the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center continues to progress with project-related utilities, site preparations and deep foundations.  The following notifications will be posted as changes occur, and we ask that you mention these updates to your colleagues.

Week of February 24

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 will be 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 will be 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.
