Plan ahead: West Medical Center Drive repaving project
Don’t forget, repaving work at the north end of West Medical Center Drive (WMCD) is scheduled to be completed in short phases between April 21 and May 8.
Plan ahead and alert patients if they will be traveling in the area.
Here’s what you need to know:
- WMCD is scheduled to be closed to thru traffic from May 5 – May 8. For the North-East Shuttle detour, please visit transit alerts.
- For the duration of this work, patient access to the P1 (Rogel Cancer Center) Structure will be maintained from the Rogel Cancer Center Circle Drive.
- P1 Blue and Gold parking access will remain open, but there will be times when vehicles are routed to adjacent exits/entrances when paving is at the driveways. Signage and flaggers will be present.
- Access in and out of the M55 Loading Docks will remain open, but there will be temporary delays when paving is at the driveway.
- Please expect delays when traveling in the area. P1 and Loading Dock traffic will enter the construction zone from the east and exit to the west.
- There will be a sidewalk closure on April 21 to replace a concrete slab at the P1 Structure Blue entrance. Signs will be posted.
- Sidewalks will remain open for pedestrians from April 22 through the duration of the project.
