Medical Center Drive to be closed to through traffic for eight weeks beginning Nov. 11

Beginning at 6 a.m. on Saturday, Nov.11, and ending at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 30, Medical Center Drive will be closed to through traffic. Although this street closure will last eight weeks, the Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital (VUH) patient drop-off and pick up will be open during this period. Valet at the VUH drop-off will not be available during this period. Valet service will still be available at the 21st Avenue South VUH garage entrance.

Staff are asked not to use Medical Center Drive as a drop off and pick up place for work purposes during this period.

The reason for this street closure is for the installation and construction of a three-story bridge that will connect the Medical Center East-North Tower and the sixth, seventh and eighth floors of Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital. 

VUPD will be positioned along Medical Center Drive to help facilitate traffic flow.
