Signal Work Triggers Lane Closures

Motorists will encounter intermittent lane closures on Friday, Nov. 16, and Monday, Nov. 19, on northbound Sand Point Way NE approaching Penny Drive. A crew will be cutting the roadway and installing detectors that alert the traffic signal a vehicle is present in the left turn lane so the light will change. Although the work will restrict traffic, the road will remain open throughout the project.

Cutting will take place Friday. The left turn lane on Sand Point Way NE will be closed from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. The inside lane will be closed from 12-2 p.m. and traffic will be diverted to the curb lane. The curb lane will be closed from 2-4 p.m. and traffic will be diverted to the inside lane. The detectors will be installed Monday. Lane closures will occur in the same progression as on Friday, but for shorter durations.

A police officer will be present both days to assist motorists when the left turn lane is closed and provide other help as needed. We appreciate your patience as we improve traffic safety and flow around our campus.

Roofing Project Begins Saturday, Oct. 27

We’re replacing the Balloon Building’s roof. Work begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27., when a crane will lift materials onto the roof. The crane, which will be set up in the dietary courtyard, will be removed by the end of the day. Replacing the roof and exterior HVAC ducts will take about three weeks, weather permitting.


Barriers Up, Work Proceeds on Skybridge Connection

Work to connect the Train Building to the Building Hope skybridge proceeds on schedule. Construction barriers are in place on levels 1, 4 and 5, where demolition is underway. Medical gas, fire sprinklers and plumbing will be shut down at scheduled times this week. Within the next two weeks, construction barriers will be up and work will be occurring on each of the five levels that will connect to the skybridge.  Click here for additional information on skybridge work.

Re-Striping Penny Drive Taking Place This Wednesday Through Saturday

Re-striping of Penny Drive will begin this Wednesday, Oct 24, through Saturday, Oct. 27 (depending on progress and weather). Work will include grinding off old pavement markings and adding new traffic lines that will move to accommodate a new 5-foot bike lane. Two lanes of traffic should remain open during most of the work; Security Services will be on site to help direct traffic.


Activity Intensifies as Skybridge Punches Through

The skybridge is coming – and so is some intense construction. Completing the connection between Building Hope and the Train Building will create noise and vibration within parts of the hospital and restrict access to certain areas starting the week of Oct. 22 and lasting for approximately 100 days.
