Utility crews will continue working in and around the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center project site through August, with most remaining public utility and electrical work concentrated on Emile and 45th streets.

Here are scheduled work dates:

Friday, Aug. 8
M.U.D is scheduled to complete final utility tie-ins to the existing campus infrastructure, impacting the traffic patterns of patients, faculty, staff and students along Emile Street. Work will take place in front of the Durham Outpatient Center circle drive and involve vehicular lane restrictions along Emile Street. During this time, those exiting the circle drive will be required to turn east (left). Pedestrians will be required to use the Emile Street pedestrian walkway between Lot 50 and the Durham Outpatient Center, shifted just east of its current location, as a result of the work. (See map here.)Depending on weather conditions and testing results, work in this area may extend into the week of Aug. 11.

During this time, access to and from Green/Lot 2 visitor parking and Lot 50 employee parking will be maintained. Throughout construction, drivers and pedestrians are asked to exercise extreme caution and pay attention to posted signage as lane restrictions and traffic direction changes will be ongoing.

Wednesday, Aug. 13
Electrical work will take place at the intersection of 45th and Emile streets. Throughout this work, two lanes will remain open at all times, and flagmen will be in place to direct traffic. Work is expected to continue into the week of Aug. 25-29.

Friday, Aug. 22
Once electrical work is complete at the intersection of 45th and Emile streets, crews will continue electrical work in the center lane of 45th Street. During this time, two-way traffic will be maintained as will access to and from Green/Lot 2 visitor parking.
