Expect delays for pedestrian and vehicle travel as project shifts to east side of street for sidewalk replacement
The sidewalk flanking the east side of 15th Street between Laney-Walker Boulevard and Harper Street will be closed beginning Feb. 3 for sidewalk and driveway replacements as the city of Augusta and Georgia Department of Transportation continue making improvements along the medical corridor.
The main hospital driveway at Entrance 3 into Augusta University Medical Center will remain open for entry and exit, but congestion will likely cause intermittent delays.
This will affect patients and visitors to AU Medical Center, as well as students, faculty and staff who park, walk, ride the JagExpress Shuttles and/or drive on this portion of 15th Street.
Temporary signage will be erected to detour pedestrian traffic around the work areas to the signalized intersections at Laney-Walker and Harper. Pedestrians should cross 15th Street at designated crosswalks, and crossing guards are in place to provide assistance.
Please direct questions about this project to Anthony Taylor with the city of Augusta Engineering Department at 706-796-5040.
