COLUMBIA — The section of Hospital Drive between College Avenue and Monk Drive will open at 5:30 p.m. Thursday after being closed for construction. Traffic lights have been installed at College Avenue.

The next phase of the project will close Hospital Drive between the University Hospital ambulance exit and Monk Drive on Friday. This section is scheduled to reopen Aug. 7. Visitors to University Hospital can use Monk Drive to reach the Patient and Visitor Parking Garage and the front circle drive, according to an MU release.

Construction at the intersection of College Avenue with the old Hospital Drive and Ashland Road is scheduled to be finished Nov. 15 after the installation of chilled water lines, according to MU Campus Facilities' Campus Construction Projects map. The stoplights at the intersection will be flashing yellow.

Supervising editor is Jake Kreinberg.
