For the next several months, Archer Road will be under construction near UF Health Shands Hospital and UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital as well as our nearby visitor and employee parking garages a few blocks west. The final design will include better lighting, lower speed limits and pedestrian safety features that include a mid-block crosswalk. These features will create a safer environment that will benefit UF Health faculty, staff, patients and visitors.
During construction there will be uneven surfaces, construction equipment, traffic pattern changes and pedestrian path changes. Please do not cross construction barriers such as the orange fences or concrete barriers. These barriers are in place for your safety and the safety of construction workers. Staff members parking in the blue decal Parking Garage 9 on Archer Road and the Triangle Lot adjacent to the ShandsCair helipad should cross the street at Gale Lemerand Drive, Center Drive or 16th Street.
Please communicate with the UF Health Shands Safety department at 352-265-0028 if you have a concern about an unsafe condition at the construction site.
Thank you for adhering to these safety protocols.
