10 Day Look Ahead: Renewal Project Construction Activities

 

The Stanford University Medical Center Renewal Project, which will expand Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, rebuild Stanford Hospital, modernize Hoover Pavilion, and replace School of Medicine laboratories, is underway. Below is a summary of the Renewal Project's anticipated construction activities, hours of activity, and any affected lane or road closures over the next 10 days. Please click here to subscribe to our 10 day look aheads, which will be emailed every Friday and archived on the Renewal Project website.

 

Please note that that the scope of work and dates of work are subject to change without notice, especially due to weather impacts.

Non-Renewal Project Related Construction Activity

On Friday, 7/13, from 4 pm until 3 am on Saturday, 7/14, Stanford University contractors will be working along the south side of Pasteur Drive, west of Welch Road, and also south along Welch Road. During this time, underground cables will be installed between the existing manholes along those streets. Traffic control measures will be implemented during this. Contact information is Carlos Deanda 650-444-8607

 

The week of 7/16, new curb and gutter will be installed at the intersection of Welch and Oak Road for the SoM Satellite Research Facility. Oak Road will be open. Expect some delays in traffic.  

Welch Road Utility Project

August 2011-September 2013

One of the first steps in the effort to expand Packard Children's Hospital and rebuild Stanford Hospital includes utility work and surface improvements. The Welch Road Utility Project includes: replacing utility services and information technology infrastructure along Welch and Quarry Roads to serve the new hospital facilities once they are built; the widening of Welch Road; replacement of sidewalks, curbs and gutters; planting of new street trees and installation of planted medians and street lighting.

 

Note:Access to the Emergency Room will be maintained at all times.

 

This week's activities: 

 

What to expect this weekend (7/14-7/15)

Hours of Construction Activity: 7am - 5:30 pm

 

Utility work will continue on Welch and Quarry Roads on Saturday. 

 

Weekday work (7/16-7/20)
Hours of Construction Activity: 7am - 5:30 pm

 

Welch Rd is now a one-lane, one-way road going West from Quarry to Pasteur Drive.This change will be in effect for two years. We thank you for your patience regarding this significant change and ask that you please adjust your driving route accordingly. South Pasteur Drive is now a two-way two-lane road. North Pasteur Drive is closed between Blake Wilbur Drive and Sand Hill Road.

 

K-Rail will remain in place on the inboard side of Quarry Rd (between Welch and continuing up to the Quarry Extension near the turn to the Emergency Department) in order to facilitate ongoing utility work. This reduces Quarry to a two lane, two direction road during this time. Access will be maintained to the Emergency Department at all times.

 

Work will continue to construct a new road near the Blake Wilbur Clinic and 1101 Welch Road. This road will ultimately serve ambulances from Welch Road into the New Stanford Hospital facility. Pedestrian detour signage is in place on Blake Wilbur Drive. Access to the clinics will be maintained at all times.  Utility excavation will now be adjacent to the Blake Wilbur Building.

 

Work to tie in the new Blake Wilbur Drive to the existing Blake Wilbur Drive has begun. The route through the AMC/Blake Wilbur corridor may be slower as a result of the tighter routing of vehicles through the canopied area. Flaggers are in place.

 

The sidewalk that runs from AMC/Blake Wilbur Clinics adjacent to 801 Welch through to Welch will be replaced next week and require a temporary re-routing of pedestrian traffic through this area. We estimate this work to take a week.

 

The lower path at Packard Children's next to 777 Welch remains closed for tree evaluation. The upper path alongside the Packard Children's main driveway remains open. Signage is in place to assist pedestrians. 

 

Please be cautious of construction trucks entering the road. Access to the Emergency Room will be maintained at all times.
