University Health Services Facility Project begins March 30, 2015

The University Health Services Facility project will impact the Gannett Health Center staff and patient parking areas, as well as the metered lot behind Willard Straight Hall.

To accommodate project needs, the patient parking spaces will be relocated to the area near the visitor parking and information booth on Campus Road. The number of spaces in the metered lot will be reduced to 25, including two handicap-accessible spaces. The Gannett staff parking lot is being eliminated.

The metered, service, and loading spaces will be accessible from Campus Road until a new temporary service drive is in place. Pedestrian routing will be modified and signed appropriately.

Project updates will be posted to the special conditions web site at http://www.cornell.edu/cuinfo/specialconditions/.

Traffic Control Gates Installed on East Ave

The Klarman Hall construction project necessitated the closing of the southbound lane of East Avenue until Spring of 2015. The northbound lane of East Avenue is designated for use by buses, bicycles and emergency vehicles only. All other through traffic has been detoured using West Ave.

To stop general traffic from traveling through the limited access portion of East Avenue, traffic control gates have been installed at both ends of the lane. Only bicycles, emergency vehicles, and vehicles equipped with a transponder to raise the gate will be able to travel the roadway.

If you have any questions regarding the traffic-control gates, please contact Transportation Services at transportation@cornell.edu.
