PARKINGK LOT 1 (ORANGE PARKING) STRUCTURE

Repair work to begin for safety improvements to Lot 1 parking structure. The construction project will begin Monday, April 30, 2018, and is expected to run through October 31, 2018.

To make room for patient parking, employees/staff who currently park in Lot 5 will instead park in Lot 6 directly to the east until construction is complete.

Visitor and patient self-parking will be directed to the Yellow Parking (Lot 5) garage on the east side of 42nd Street. Valet parking will continue to be available at the entrance of Clarkson Tower.

Pedestrian traffic at the intersection of 42nd Street and Dewey Avenue is expected to increase. The city of Omaha will adjust the pedestrian traffic signals to allow for extra time for people to safely cross 42nd Street.

Private ambulances will no longer be able to access the area near the former Radiation Oncology entrance on the lower level of Lot 1, They will need the area near the Kiewit shuttle stop to access the tunnel into Clarkson Tower.

If you have any questions, please contact Erin Ebmeier-Peters at 402-552-3241 or by email at eebmeierpeters@nebraskamed.com.
