Construction/ Delay Update for Aug 9-13

Construction/ Delay Update for Aug 9-13

Construction is happening all around the east end and with construction comes road closures and delays. St Luke’s is working hard to keep EENA informed of all expected construction/ delays due to their big projects. Here is the most current information they’ve provided us:

Jefferson St. Closure by St. Luke’s Children’s Pavilion Construction: Jefferson Street between Ave B and Ave C will be closed this weekend, Aug. 12 – 13 to construct a drive ramp into the project’s underground parking. The roadway will be re-opened to traffic by 6 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 13.


Idaho Street Parking Entrance Closure, Aug. 9 or 10: The vehicle entrance between St. Luke’s South Tower and the underground parking garage on Idaho Street will be closed on Wednesday, Aug. 9 or Thursday, Aug. 10 to install a storm sewer. The vehicle closure will be intermittent until work in the area is completed.


Pedestrian Crossing Closure: The signaled pedestrian crossing from Noble Park to the north side of Idaho Street also is closed while concrete is placed in the area. For the next week or so, those walking north from the St. Luke’s Warm Springs parking garage/area should cross Idaho Street at Avenue B, 2nd Street or, if open, on the west side of 1st Street. Sidewalk closure signs and construction tape are in place to help safely guide pedestrians.


Map (provided):
