Campus UpdateTo allow for equipment and materials to be delivered and hoisted to appropriate levels of the Floyd & Delores Jones Pavilion during its ongoing internal build-out, a single southbound lane of Boren Avenue between Seneca and Spring streets will be closed for much of the next eight months. The closure will begin Tuesday, Oct. 15, and continue Mondays through Fridays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. through May 2014. Skanska construction crews will use cones and flaggers to direct traffic.

This work also requires modifications to a portion of the sidewalk on the west side of Boren. Skanska crews will install covered walkways for the public to use during the project, and the sidewalks will remain open at all times. The existing bus stop will be relocated temporarily to the corner of Spring and Boren.

In addition to the lane closure on Boren, the sidewalk on the north side of Spring will continue to be closed. Pedestrian access to the Emergency Department is available on the marked sidewalk path at the ambulance exit. The work will not affect vehicular access into and out of the ED.

Boren Closure Oct. 19

On Saturday, Oct. 19, from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., Boren will be closed between Seneca and Spring for crews to erect the crane on the roof of Jones Pavilion that will be used to hoist equipment and materials.

On behalf of the entire Virginia Mason team, thank you for your patience during interior construction of the Jones Pavilion. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we will continue to keep you informed of new developments and timelines.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact Mike Sprouse, Virginia Mason Communications, (206) 583-6541,
