Kaplan Drive Construction

June 27th, 2012

Work is under way in front of Stanford Hospital & Clinics to prepare the Kaplan Lawn site for the construction of the new Kaplan Drive.

This new road will serve as the main entrance into the new Stanford Hospital once it opens its doors to first patients in 2019.

The new two lane road will run north and south through Kaplan Lawn and will facilitate access into the current hospital facilities when utility work occurs on North Pasteur (at Blake Wilbur Drive).

Pedestrian access will be accommodated running east to west from the PS-4 employee parking lot to the fountain.

Impacts from the Kaplan Lawn construction are expected to be minimal. The construction work, which is expected to take 3-4 weeks, will be completely contained by fence wrap.

Once the new road is complete, some traffic pattern changes will occur to accommodate utility work on North Pasteur in front of PS-3 (the visitor parking lot). We will continue to keep you posted on these changes.
