Reminder: Practice pedestrian safety on medical campus

March 14, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

At Michigan Medicine, the safety of faculty, staff and patients is a top priority. That’s why all employees are asked to be diligent in following pedestrian and traffic rules across the medical campus, including only crossing streets at designated crosswalks.

While there is a natural temptation to take shorter routes, the regulations are in place to ensure you — along with patients and families traveling to and from the academic medical center — are kept out of harm’s way at all times.

One such area where these rules are especially important is along W. Medical Center Dr. near the P1 parking structure and the Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Currently, many faculty and staff members are crossing W. Medical Center Dr. partway down the street and cutting through the structure’s vehicle entrance and exit ramps. This is dangerous to both pedestrians and drivers.

Please be advised: There is no pedestrian traffic allowed cutting through the parking structure. Signs are now posted indicating these rules, which will be monitored by security.

Please see the map below, which indicates the only acceptable — and safe — routes for those walking to the medical center from Fuller Rd. and the Wall St. area.

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping Michigan Medicine as safe as possible for everyone!
