The development occurring across North Decatur Road is coming along and many of the restaurants and services are scheduled to open in September. The Whole Foods store plans to open in mid December. SJ Collins, the developer, is working with the hospital and county to improve hospital access along North Decatur Road. A traffic light will be installed at Wash Lively Circle (one-way onto campus) and North Decatur Road.
Construction begins next Thursday, June 21. That evening, both lanes entering the hospital on Wash Lively Circle will be closed from 10 p.m. – 2 a.m. From June 22 until July 18, one lane on Wash lively Circle will remain closed outside the Diagnostic Imaging Center (DIC). Entrances to parking for the DIC and professional buildings will remain open.
In early August, when the improvements are complete, the east end of Wash Lively Circle will become two-way and the traffic light will assist people entering or leaving campus. The west side of Wash Lively (by the Dr. Bobbie Bailey Tower) will continue to be one-way leading off campus, but those exiting must turn right onto North Decatur Road.
Signs will be posted to direct patients and visitors, but please notify anyone coming on campus that we will have construction going on. Feel free to route visitors onto campus from Winn Way or Sycamore.
We will continue to provide updates as construction progresses. Thank you for your patience as work takes place on these improvements.
