Manning Drive will close to through traffic between South Columbia Street and New East Drive beginning at 8 p.m. Friday, March 13, through 5 a.m. Monday, March 16, to facilitate the installation of a crane at the UNC Hospitals Surgical Tower project site.

Traffic will be detoured along Mason Farm Road and New East Drive. The Dogwood Parking Deck will remain open and accessible for patient and visitor parking. Staff should access the Cardinal Parking Deck from West Drive via Mason Farm Road. Pedestrians should remain alert to traffic changes and follow designated pedestrian detours.

Bus stops #3238 and #3239 on Manning Drive at UNC Hospitals will not be serviced while Manning Drive is closed. Chapel Hill Transit and GoTriangle will make every attempt to maintain schedules, but riders should plan for possible delays due to rerouting.
