P3 Garage construction

Construction Projects on the University of Kansas Medical Center Campus

The University of Kansas Medical Center and The University of Kansas Health System are undergoing major expansion construction projects that will ultimately enhance their ability to provide health care services. However, in the interim, construction will cause some disruptions. This website will provide updates and disruption notices for our employees, students, patients, neighbors and community.

Parking Garage 3 renovation project begins March 12

This project will last approximately 30 months, weather dependent.

Parking Garage 3 (P3), located on Cambridge Street, will undergo a facelift to repair concrete slabs and enhance the patient experience. Starting Monday, March 12, crews will begin work on the 790-space garage. Upon completion, patients and their families will enjoy refreshed parking spots, better lighting and clearly visible ADA space indicators. Throughout the project, upgraded wayfinding signage will be provided.    

During the construction period:

  • P3 parking will be dedicated for patient and family parking only. Parkers will be screened before entering the garage and will be redirected if necessary.
  • Business partners, consultants, contractors and vendors will be asked to park in the new 2,069-space Parking Garage 5 (P5), located at 3724 Cambridge Street just north of the new Cambridge Tower A or in P2 on Olathe Boulevard, whichever is closest to their destination. View map.
  • Concrete parking decks will be repaired, with approximately 350 parking spaces out of service for six months in the first phase of the project. Work will progress in phases from the top levels of the garage to the ground level.
  • Pilot tests were conducted in 2017 to ensure the best way for workers to minimize noise, dust and disruptions.
  • Public stairs will always be accessible.
  • Elevators will be operational.
  • Follow us on social media or check this website for timely construction updates.

P3 was built in 1979 and this investment will extend the garage's life by at least 25 years.
