Access to the section of Laney-Walker Boulevard that runs through Georgia Regents University’s Health Sciences Campus will change as early as Nov. 9 as construction to enhance the road continues.
Vehicles will not be able to access Laney-Walker via 15th Street, only via R.A. Dent Boulevard, with the exception of those parking in The Student Center lot. Access to Student Health and the Kelly Administration Building will remain, but only via R.A. Dent Boulevard.
Limited access via 15th Street is expected until late January.
Construction to enhance Laney-Walker began in May and involves reducing the number of traffic lanes from four to two, as well as adding raised crosswalks, bike lanes on both sides of the street and a landscape feature to improve storm water runoff.
Laney-Walker serves as a connector for the academic, research and clinical operations housed on GRU’s Health Sciences Campus and is a central thoroughfare for those working and attending classes in the new College of Dental Medicine building and the J. Harold Harrison, MD Education Commons.
