|CTSB Site Fenced Off Next Week|
Beginning next week, builders will install temporary fencing around the CTSB (Clinical and Translational Science Building) construction site. Parkers already have been informed that, beginning Tuesday, May 26, Logan's permit holders will begin parking at Logan's Lot (1420 Scottsville Road, also called the Scottsville Road Lot), and Lot 3 permit holders will begin parking in the new Lot 3.
With this fencing blocking the pedestrian walkway that previously led out from these lots toward Crittenden Boulevard, Lot 3 and Lot 2 parkers will be advised to head either west (out to the sidewalk that hugs Kendrick Road) or east (immediately north or south of the Children’s School at URMC, and then out to Castleman Road). To avoid disrupting classes underway at the School of Nursing, faculty and staff are asked to not cut through the Helen Wood Hall’s Loretta C. Ford Education Wing (the southern-end door accessing this wing will be locked).
Additionally, since the main access to the construction area will be created off Kendrick Road, staff using this sidewalk are asked to pay special attention to the flagman's instructions when crossing in front of this entrance.
A small, 55-space visitor lot (labeled on the map linked below, and accessible by Kendrick Road) will be maintained throughout the construction process.To view a map of the suggested new walking routes, click here.
As health care reform challenges us to expand health insurance to cover 30 million more Americans – and improve the quality and effectiveness of that care, all on a smaller dime – traditional industry arrangements will only go so far. We sat down with URMC Chief Operating Officer Peter Robinson to make sense of how reform’s new financial incentives are rewriting relationships among players.
