Update: Weekend construction and repair projects

August 12, 2016  //  FOUND IN: News

Please be advised that two weekend construction projects may affect UMHS staff and visitors. First, the city is expected to temporarily close the intersection of East Medical Center Dr. and Observatory St. this Sunday. It is one of the final steps in the ongoing repaving project. Be sure to plan ahead and expect delays. Also remember to remind patients and visitors to build in extra time when traveling to the area.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • The intersection is expected to be closed beginning at 7 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 14
  • The intersection is expected to reopen around noon on Sunday.
  • For those who use AAATA, please visit the AAATA website, as buses using Observatory will be rerouted the day of the pavement work.

Additionally, there is an ongoing concrete repair project in the circular drive to the Cardiovascular Center. The project began on Thursday and is expected to last through Saturday, though the work is weather-dependent.

Those who work in the area, including members of the valet staff and entrance services, are directed to move operations indoors as much as possible.

While the work may be inconvenient, it is essential to repair various trip hazards that the current uneven concrete presents outside of CVC. The project will make our facility safer for all patients, visitors and staff.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
