OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - A portion of a road near a hospital will close throughout October.

According to Nebraska Medicine, starting Monday, a section of Dewey Avenue will be closed near the hospital’s emergency room.

The closure will be on Dewey Avenue between the Nebraska Medical Center Emergency Department and the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center delivery dock.

The road will be closed Saturday through Oct. 30.

Patients can still access the emergency department as normal.

During the closure, emergency room traffic will have to come from 44th and Farnam streets. Nebraska Medicine says that is already the most popular route for patients to access the emergency department entrance.

Nebraska Medicine says the closure is for soil stabilization to support the demolition of the former home of the Munroe-Meyer Institute.
