Beginning Monday, July 29, West Norfolk Avenue between Emergency Road and 27th Street will be closed to traffic due to the construction of the skywalk connecting Faith Regional’s new South Medical Office Building with its existing west campus.
Westbound drivers coming to Faith Regional’s Emergency Room and businesses west of the hospital will be rerouted south to Highway 275 at the intersection of West Norfolk Avenue and 25th Street. Access to the hospital’s main entrance off of 27th Street will remain open.
West Norfolk Avenue between 25th Street and 27th Street will remain open to local traffic only. Barricades and signs, including Emergency Route signs, will be erected to direct traffic.
The new 109,000 square foot medical office building currently under construction will enable Faith Regional to deliver more convenient, patient-centered care and the close proximity to the West Campus provides access to continuous patient flow, improves care delivery and will enhance the overall patient experience.
The closure is expected to run through October. If there are any questions or concerns on the temporary road closure, please call the City of Norfolk Engineering Office at 402-844-2020.
