Road Projects Affecting Traffic Around University of Michigan Hospitals

New Adult Hospital Construction

Later this month, construction will begin on the new adult hospital to be located adjacent to the Frankel Cardiovascular Center. In preparation for the project, fencing will be installed in mid-December around the construction site. The fencing will remain in place through 2024. Here is some important information about factors that may affect your hospital visit:

  • Traffic: There will be intermittent lane closures on Catherine Street through summer 2020.
  • Parking: Approximately 15 metered parking spaces along Ann Street will become unavailable when fencing is installed.
  • Dust Exposure and Masks: Please be assured that we will make great efforts to keep dust exposure to a minimum. However, patients should be aware of the potential for exposure and should use a mask if you have any dust and mold sensitivities. You will be notified of this recommendation via your appointment reminders, and masks will be available at the entrances and exists close to the construction site.
  • Signs and Wayfinding: Signs will be posted around campus to assist pedestrians. View a wayfinding map of the hospital campus during construction (PDF).
