KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Construction work will close two of The University of Kansas Hospital's front entrances for most of Saturday, Sept. 9.
From 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m., crews will use a crane to hoist materials to the third floor of the hospital. During the activity, the hospital's main entrance and entrance just north of it will be closed.
Patients and visitors can still use the entrance to the far north (at the Center for Advanced Heart Care) and far south (at the Marc A. Asher, MD, Comprehensive Spine Center).
Spotters will be at the site to make sure unauthorized individuals stay clear of the construction activity. Traffic lanes on Cambridge near the hospital valet will be coned off but still navigable as the work progresses.
The work on Saturday involves setting up scaffolding and a temporary air-handling duct.
39th Street limited
Work on the pedestrian bridge linking the main hospital to Cambridge Tower A will alter traffic slightly this weekend.
From 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 9, the inside east and west lanes of 39th Street will be navigable, and emergency vehicles and other vehicles will be able to turn onto Cambridge Street to access the main hospital. Watch for construction signs.
