Welch Road Utility Project

The Welch Road Utility Project was the first phase of the Renewal Project and served as a vital step in ensuring the underlying functionality of the new medical facilities. Work included replacing utility services and information technology infrastructure along Welch and Quarry Roads – in addition to constructing new utilities to serve the new hospital facilities once they are built.

This effort also included the widening of Welch Road, one of the main arteries into the medical center campus, and the replacement of sidewalks, planting of new trees, installation of planted medians and street lighting.

Welch Road Re-opened to Two-Way Traffic on July 22nd

  • Welch Road re-opened to two-way traffic on Monday, July 22nd.
  • The Welch Road driveways to 750/770 Welch are now open. The Vineyard Lane driveway to these properties permanently closed on July 23, 2013.
