Construction Update -December 4, 2011: We are making great progress! Please use the Main entrance at Homestead Road intersection to ENTER the property. There is only one lane and it is for ENTRY ONLY. Please use the Southern Driveway near the Hut (log cabin) to EXIT the property. Make a RIGHT ONLY EXIT onto MLK Blvd. so we don't end up with a traffic jam. NO LEFT TURN EXIT. People may park in existing spaces or in the newly created parking areas on the gravel. Pay attention to our Safety Patrol volunteers as they may need you to stop and wait while directing incoming/outgoing traffic. Thanks!
Construction Update - Starts Tuesday Morning, Nov. 22, 2011: Weekday Use: The Main Entrance at Homestead/MLK Blvd. intersection will be closed until further notice. Please use the Southern driveway as both an entrance and an exit. Please make a RIGHT ONLY onto MLK Blvd. when you exit the property -- even if it means you have to alter your route home (or have to make a U-turn after the Homestead Rd. intersection) -- so that we can get cars off the property more safely and efficiently. Please plan to park as close to the Sanctuary and the Hut as possible on weekdays while work near the main entrance is being conducted. Construction workers will be using the gravel parking lot in front of the playground for employee parking until paving is completed on the newly created parking areas. Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation as we complete this important piece of the project. There will be times when we can open a travel lane at the main entrance for our evening and Sunday use, but this is likely to be off and on for a while.
Construction Update for October 25, 2011: We anticipate that the southern entrance will be closed on or before the week of Nov. 1. Please do not park in the area of the Hut when the southern entrance is closed. The temporary gravel parking pad near the playground will remain in place until the end of construction. The main entrance will stay open until work at the southern entrance is complete to the point that we can use it as our access driveway to our new parking lots. There will be a few weeks where we will have new parking lots open but our main entrance will be closed. During that time, we will have to use the southern entrance to enter and exit. We anticipate that the new parking lots will be paved the week of Nov. 9. We anticipate most of the site work will be completed before Thanksgiving, but we believe we will have some work to do after Thanksgiving. All scheduling issues are weather related. Please keep in mind that sidewalks are poured last. We appreciate your patience and dedication to OUMC! Get ready to celebrate!
