Access to the section of Laney-Walker Boulevard that runs through Augusta University’s Health Sciences Campus will change as early Monday, Dec. 14, 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.
Access to Laney-Walker via 15th Street is expected to be limited through 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 Augusta University’s Health Sciences Campus and is a central thoroughfare for those working and attending classes in the new Dental College of Georgia building and the J. Harold Harrison, MD Education Commons.
