Annex 8 / 412 Building (MMI Clinic)

Main Entrance (Partial Sidewalk Closure)

Starting today, October 7, 2016, the front sidewalk to the main entrance will be partially closed.  Due to the rain that washed some of the concrete away, the contractor will have to pull up and replace a part of the sidewalk again.  The spot being worked on is near the front door to the main entrance.  You will still have access to the building.

Sidewalk Closure:

 Start Time:         Friday, October 7, 2016, at 5:00 p.m.

End Time:           Saturday, October 8, 2016, at 5:00 p.m. (Approximately)

Anyone walking near the construction site area should use caution and observe the barricades and warning signs. 

If you have any questions, please contact Tom Payne at 402-981-7269 or by email at tpayne@unmc.edu.  If you know of anyone that uses this sidewalk, please mention the partial sidewalk closure to them.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)
