Portion of Lee Street Closed Saturday

June 14, 2012 — A section of Lee Street will be closed from midnight Saturday until midnight Sunday to remove a construction crane.

Lee Street will be closed between Jefferson Park Avenue and the Northgate entrance to the University of Virginia Medical Center.

Drivers and pedestrians can use Roosevelt Brown Boulevard and Crispell Drive to reach the following locations at U.Va. Medical Center:

• Lee Street Garage

• Emergency Department

• Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center

• University Hospital

Signs and message boards will be posted to help direct drivers and pedestrians. Staff members will be stationed at both ends of the closed section of Lee Street to provide assistance.

The crane is being removed to provide room for the installation of the framework of a new pedestrian bridge between the Lee Street Garage and U.Va. Medical Center, which is scheduled to occur June 30 to July 1.
