Construction Projects on the University of Kansas Medical Center Campus

The University of Kansas Medical Center and The University of Kansas Hospital 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 Hospital's pedestrian bridge construction 

Construction crews continue to work on the hospital's pedestrian walkway, which will connect the new Cambridge North Tower to the Center for Advanced Heart Care across Cambridge and 39th Street. Phase I is scheduled through Oct. 8, when Phase II is tentatively scheduled to begin. All dates are weather permitting.

Now through Oct. 8

  • Two-way traffic on 39th will be diverted slightly. View the detour map.
  • On Oct. 7, the sidewalk will be reopened on the east side of Cambridge all the way to 39th Street.

Beginning Oct. 8          

  • Phase II of the bridge construction is scheduled to begin. View the detour map.
  • Cambridge Street will remain one-way traffic until further notice.

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.
