Phase one of construction for the new patient tunnel connecting Northwestern Memorial Hospital’s (NMH) Feinberg and Galter Pavilions with the new Prentice Women’s Hospital began Feb. 6 and will last approximately six months.
The north side of Huron St. including the sidewalk will be closed. The south side of the street and sidewalk will remain open and available for use. The north half of Superior Street up to and including the Prentice construction site will not be accessible. The south side of the street including the sidewalk will remain open and available for use.
The alley and loading dock of the Health Sciences Building (HSB) is closed to both pedestrians and vehicles. The Feinberg-Galter loading dock in the Huron Garage will be used for all NMH deliveries and pickups previously routed to the HSB loading dock.
