A Look Back at 2009
As 2009 drew to a close construction of ProjectONE was well underway. The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) 8T research scanner was removed from the MRI Building so that the building could be razed; the glass connector between Means Hall and the Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute was taken down; and demolition of Emergency Department space within Means Hall, as well as Means Hall itself, started.
What's Next for 2010?
For the coming year, faculty and staff can expect to see continued infrastructure preparation and an official groundbreaking this summer.Already changes have been made to accommodate demolition, construction and infrastructure upgrades.
Construction fences run along the north side of Cramblett Hall and surround the ProjectONE construction area. Upham Drive roadway access to Harding Hospital has been rerouted to 12th Avenue.
During summer and autumn 2010, infrastructure upgrades will be made to utilities that run under and along 10th and 12th avenues and Cannon Drive. Preparations will also begin during the second half of 2010 to move faculty and staff from Cramblett Hall so that it can be demolished.
A centralized valet program, operating from the drive in front of Rhodes Hall and the Ross Heart Hospital was unified earlier in the month for parking services for patients and visitors. This service incorporated valet options previously offered at the entrances to The James and Cramblett Hall.
What doesn't change in 2010?
Road access to the University Hospital Emergency. Department will remain the same in 2010. Cramblett Hall and the Cannon Parking Garages will remain open during the coming year. 10th and 12th avenues and Cannon Drive are expected to remain open, with some lane restrictions during utility work.
