KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Patients and visitors who will be on or around the main campus on Saturday, November 18, please note the following construction changes. These will be in effect for this day only.
Two hospital entrances closed
Construction work will close two of The University of Kansas Hospital's front entrances for most of Saturday, November 18.
From 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m., crews will use a crane to hoist materials to and from the third floor of the hospital. During this activity, the hospital's main entrance and the entrance directly to the north of it will be closed.
Patients and visitors can still use the entrance to the far north (located at the Center for Advanced Heart Care) and far south (located near 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.
Garage entrance availability changing throughout day
The Cambridge Parking Garage will be closed for several hours Saturday, November 18, to allow workers to install new signs for the most frequently used visitor garage.
Beginning at 6:30 a.m., crews will begin replacing Cambridge Parking Garage signs with new Parking Lot 3 (P3) signs. The job should take about 5 hours. Electronic signs will direct vehicles to other parking garages on the main campus during the activity.
After that sign is replaced, workers will change signs from the Olathe Parking Garage to the new Parking Lot 2 (P2). This job will not require the lot to close as the garage has two entrances and exits.
If you find you have questions during Saturday's sign work, call the University of Kansas Medical Center's Police Department at 913-588-5030.
