Roadwork on 44th Street next week will mean people will need to use a different route to reach the Nebraska Medical Center emergency room at 4350 Dewey Ave. Construction crews will be repairing 44th Street.
Beginning at Farnam Street, 44th Street will be closed to all traffic, including emergency vehicles from the afternoon of Tuesday, May 4, to the afternoon of Friday, May 7. The emergency room will remain open. Access will still be available to the emergency room via the entrance on Dewey Street. Multiple electronic billboards will be in place on campus prior to and throughout the project alerting drivers to the closure and directing them toward the alternate entrance route.
The signs will be visible on all routes leading to the emergency room, funneling traffic from Emile Street to 45th Street and finally, to Dewey Avenue. This route will be the only way to access the emergency room during the two-day closure.
The map above provides a detailed look at the project.
