Light Poles to be painted!

Phase 1 – 42nd Street from Leavenworth to Dodge

Phase 2 – Emile Street from 45th Street to 42nd Street

Starting on Monday, August 15, 2016, Facilities Management and Planning will have a contractor on campus painting the base of the light poles along 42nd Street from Leavenworth to Dodge Street.  When the  paint work on 42nd Street is complete, the contractor will start the second phase of that work on Emile Street from 45th Street to 42nd Street.

Anyone walking or driving near the work areas, should use caution. The work will take several weeks to complete.      

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 drives or walks out 42nd Street and or uses Emile Street, please mention this minor disruption to them.

 

 

40th Street Closure

Starting  August 10, 2016, 40th Street will be closed between Emile/Jones Streets and the entrance to the Truhlsen Eye Institute.  This closure is to facilitate the construction of a new skywalk between Truhlsen and the new Lauritzen Outpatient Center.  Pedestrian traffic will need to use the new sidewalk on the east side of 41st Street – northbound vehicular access from Leavenworth to Truhlsen will not be affected.”

Anyone walking or driving in and around the construction site area should use caution and observe the barricades and warning signs. 

As the project progresses we will keep you informed.

If you have any questions, please contact Tod Ringenberg (Construction Project Manager) at 402-559-5627 or by email at tod.ringenberg@unmc.edu.    Since it is vital that everyone working in and around the area be informed, please mention it your colleagues.  (Click on drawing to enlarge.)
