Partial closure of Adelbert Road rescheduled for this weekend

Beginning Friday, June 7, after 5 p.m. and ending Sunday, June 9, from mid- to late-afternoon, Adelbert Road from just north of University Hospitals’ Adelbert Road Parking Garage to Euclid Avenue will be closed due to crane work. This work had initially been planned for last month and was rescheduled due to weather conditions.

In an emergency, access from Euclid Avenue to the first drive of Lakeside Loop will be permitted, however there will be no access from just north of the Adelbert Road Parking Garage to Euclid Avenue.

The main entrance to the Horvitz Tower at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital Lobby and the pathology building will be closed. Individuals will be able to gain access through the Adelbert Road Parking Garage by going through the tunnel at the basement level.

The walkway leading to the Biomedical Research Building will remain open to pedestrians, but while the crane is picking, pedestrian traffic on this walkway will be temporarily blocked until it is safe to continue.

The crane, one of the largest mobile cranes in the United States, will be assembled overnight Friday, and will be in motion for eight to 10 hours Saturday. Once complete, it will take approximately 10 to 12 hours to disassemble and demobilize.

Road signage and barricades will be posted. A ground crew and officers will be on hand as a precaution.
