A road construction project on Salmon Creek Lane through Aug. 26 may delay some patients trying to get to the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) Ethel Lund Medical Center and other SEARHC facilities on the Juneau campus.
SECON will be repaving Salmon Creek Lane, a project scheduled to be completed by Thursday. Construction crews will be on site from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
According to a letter from R&M Engineering, Inc., the project includes removing the existing roadway pavement, reshaping the existing base and placing new asphalt pavement with a fog seal coat. The contractor will conduct its work operations to allow emergency vehicles unrestricted access to the medical clinics.
SEARHC has been told there may be short delays of 5 to 10 minutes for regular traffic trying to access clinics in this area. The paving will be done lane by lane, so delays should be short unless the crew is right in front of an entrance to a parking lot. Please allow this extra time to get to your appointments.
