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.

The University of Kansas Health System Cambridge Tower A construction 

Cambridge Street replacement August through November

​As part of The University of Kansas Health System's Cambridge Tower A project, construction crews will be replacing Cambridge Street during the upcoming months. Beginning Monday, Aug. 7, Cambridge Street will be closed between 39th and 36th Streets. Barricades will be set up blocking the entrance to Cambridge and the entry/exit to Parking Garage 5. Access to Parking Garage 5 will be from Eaton Street only. View map.

Standard road construction and detour signage will be posted. This disruption is scheduled to last until Nov. 14. During this time, crews will remove the existing street, relocate utilities, modify sidewalks, install curbs and gutters and repave the street. For your safety, please avoid the designated construction area.

Contact John Posillico, NV5, at with any questions.  

General safety precautions

  • Safety is the top priority of hospital and medical center leadership.
  • All driving and pedestrian detours will be clearly marked.
  • Pay close attention to signs, flagmen and traffic during this time.
  • Slowing down and allowing extra time to travel to and from the campus is advised.
