Work continues on the new pedestrian bridge over Clifton Road connecting Emory University Hospital with the hospital bed tower under construction across the street. The bridge frame will be installed this weekend, with traffic implications.
Starting the evening of Friday, July 22 and continuing over the weekend through Sunday, July 24, Clifton Road will be closed between Uppergate Drive (at the Woodruff Bus Circle) and Gambrell Drive.
- Vehicles will be rerouted via detour signs to avoid the work zone.
- Pedestrian access will be closed in this area.
- Bus service will continue on Clifton Road, but will be diverted around the work zone; stop and route changes are at http://emory.transloc.com/.
- Emergency access to the ER of both Emory Healthcare and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta will remain open.
Note that this work is weather dependent and subject to change; if there are changes, Emory will provide updates. Thank you for your patience as these improvements are made on Clifton Road, and visit www.cliftonstreetscape.com for updates.
