Beginning July 5, the elevator and stairwell on the southwest corner of garage A will be closed to the ground level only for approximately one month due to construction.
All pedestrian traffic to University hospital will be directed out the east exit point on the first floor of Garage A and around to the original School of Medicine (North Wing) entrance.
Wayfinding signs will be in place to direct pedestrians accordingly. See attached map for wayfinding as well as a construction drawing showing the area being impacted.
Due to the construction impacting sidewalks, roads and pedestrian paths at the University Hospital entrance, changes to shuttle bus routes are necessary. While the construction begins July 5, route changes will begin July 2. Construction will take about three to four months.
While it is not illegal to pass a shuttle bus, it is dangerous. Do not pass a shuttle bus loading or unloading passengers. Consider avoiding congested intersections during high traffic times.
The valet service provided by ParkMed will continue to service customers. UMMC staff who assist patients and their families with arranging for pick-up activities using the valet should consider asking the driver to arrive at the valet station before the attendant retrieves the vehicle. The goal is to lessen any interruptions in customer service, but also not to park any vehicles.
Campus Police will be posted during high traffic times to monitor and control vehicle access in this congested area. Please eliminate front-door deliveries during the construction period. Campus Police will not allow vehicles to park or sit idle.
