CLOSURE OF PEDESTRIAN ACCESS TO 4230 BUILDING (from Emile Street)

As part of a major construction project associated with the Central Utility Plant chimney, all non-construction access through Lot 22U will be closed for a 10-day period, beginning Sunday, September 16th.  The closure is required in order for contractors to install a new stainless steel liner in the 99-year old brick chimney. During this period, all pedestrian traffic to Building 4230 from the north (Emile Street or Lot 50), will be routed to 42nd Street.  This closure includes use of the stairs from lower Lot 22L to upper Lot 22U (see attachment).

Schedule:

 September 16, 2018 (Sunday) thru September 25, 2018 (Tuesday),  (approximate)

If you have any questions, please contact me (Tod Ringenberg) at 402-559-5627, or by email at tod.ringenberg@unmc.edu.  Thank you for your patience and cooperation in this matter.
