Construction for the HELIX Building will begin in February 2021. The 250,000 square feet building will be located in the open space next to the Primary Children’s Eccles Outpatient Services facility and will spread across 5 1/2 levels that will connect to the main hospital complex and the rest of campus via a sky bridge near the Moran Eye Center.
Motorists, pedestrians and cyclists traveling near the construction site can expect several impacts throughout the next 18 months.
- Several stalls located on the northeast corner of the Eccles Broadcast Lot will be fenced off and unavailable. If both lots are full, motorists are encouraged to park in an alternative lot, like the Merrill Engineering Lot.
- There will be increased construction traffic on the surface lot just south of the Ambulatory Garage. Please exercise caution when walking through this area.
- Limit parking will be available in the Sorenson Lot.
- The sidewalk located between the Eccles Broadcast Lot and the Ambulatory Garage will be closed for 18 months. Pedestrians and cyclists will be rerouted to another pathway located on the east side of the Eccles Broadcast Lot, which is ADA compliment.
