Closures, Outages and Construction Notices - Health Sciences


Health Sciences Campus

1. Cancer Center

The front lobby is closed for construction, and the building’s primary entrance is temporarily relocated to the rear of the building near the garden, a spot which is already convenient to the parking deck.

  • From Laney-Walker Boulevard: Visitors coming from Laney-Walker Boulevard will need to follow the pedestrian path through the first level of the research building parking deck to access the rear entrance.
  • From the Cancer Clinic: Visitors coming from the Cancer Clinic will need to follow R.A. Dent Boulevard to the rear of the research building for access.

Here is a visual guide to the entrance modifications. (Updated 8/15/16)

2. Laney-Walker Boulevard

A temporary detour of traffic on the small portion of Laney-Walker Boulevard between 15th Street and R.A. Dent Boulevard will start as early as Oct. 24.

During the detour period, this section of Laney-Walker Boulevard and the interior of campus can be accessed only from 15th Street, not R.A. Dent Boulevard.  This includes access to the following buildings:

  • Cancer Center
  • Cancer Center parking deck
  • Kelly Administration Building
  • Central Warehouse
  • Wellness Center
  • Student Health

This detour is necessary during the construction phase of the Cancer Research Center expansion project.

This detour is expected to last 15 months. Here is a fact sheet about the detour with a traffic flow map. (Updated 10/17/16)
