A construction project to enclose the outside plazas between the Health Education Building and the Orthopedics Center and between Dowling Hall and the Orthopedics Center on the UT Health Science Campus will require the closure of a number of walkways and doors through the end of the year.
Construction will begin Monday, July 30 closing the exterior walkway between Health Education and the Orthopedic Center, as well as the exterior doors on the west side of the Health Education building and both exterior doors to the connector to Dowling Hall and the Orthopedic Center. The main entrance to the Orthopedic Center will remain open and a temporary entrance to Dowling Hall will be created across from that entrance.
Additional closures are planned starting Aug. 6, including doors on the first and second floors that connect the Health Education Building to Dowling Hall through the atrium. The second floor walkway from the UT Medical Center also will be closed at the atrium connector between Health Education and Dowling.
The closures are anticipated to last through Dec. 31.
