CLOSED – ENTRANCE DRIVE TO PARKING LOT 22U

ENTRANCE DRIVE TO PARKING LOT 22U LOCATED “BETWEEN” ARS BUILDING  AND CUP BUILDING – CLOSED

The entrance driveway between the Academic and Research Services building and the Central Utility Plant will be closed on the following date:

  • Monday, July 20, 2015, @ 7:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. (Approximately)

This closure needs to be done in order to transfer equipment onto the Central Utility Plant roof.  A crane will be set up outside of Security and will block most of the driveway on the above mentioned date. The crane will be moving materials for a roof repair. This will also impact access to Parking Lot 22U from Emile Street. (See attached photo.)

If you have any questions, please contact me (George M.) at 402-238-8211 or by email at gmiedl@unmc.edu. Since it is vital that everyone working in and around the area, and/or uses parking lots 22U and 22L be aware of the closure, I ask that you mention it to your colleagues.

The Latest on the Skywalk Construction

Work continues on the new Emile Street skywalk connecting the Durham Outpatient Center (DOC) with the Lot 50 employee parking structure. The steel framework for the structure was set in place in May and construction crews are working to enclose it and make final connections to adjacent buildings. The skywalk will be complete for use by early 2016. As construction progresses, the following impact is necessary. Drivers and pedestrians are asked to exercise caution and pay attention to posted signage as changes will be ongoing.

DOC Circle Drive to Close This Sunday, 7/19

The DOC circle drive will be closed this Sunday, 7/19. The glass work that requires the closure may not take all day, and construction teams will re-open the drive and the street as soon as possible. During the closure, the Lot 2 parking structure adjacent to the DOC will only be accessible from the 45th St. entrance.  Lot 50, at south side of Emile St., will be available for patient and visitor parking during the circle drive closure.  This work is being done on Sundays to minimize the impact to patients, visitors and staff during busier weekday times.

Reminder: Emile Street Lane Closures

The south driving lane, adjacent sidewalk and pedestrian crosswalk along Emile St., west of DOC Circle Drive are closed. Two driving lanes will remain open. Employees parking in Lot 50 are asked to utilize the east crosswalk at Emile St. during this time. This closure is anticipated to last through fall 2015.

All questions should be directed to UNMC Facilities Help Desk at 402-559-4050 or Chris Johnson, Nebraska Medicine Facilities at 402-552-3292. (Click on photo to enlarge)
