** Construction Updates **
Please see the map, outlining several solutions available for a better effective path of travel into the HEC building;
- Pedestrian crosswalk is moved up closer on Hawthorne Avenue (see attached map). DPR installed a “crosswalk” (midway between Elm and Summit) this change was built to promote an easier access into the HEC. There will be a flagman stationed at this location to assist pedestrians. At the end of each day (when the flagman are off) there will be a fence on either side of the crosswalk to help make the path of travel very clear. This will look very similar to what is currently installed along the north side of Hawthorne in front of the HEC.
- A van pick-up service will be available in front of Providence Pavilion (3100 Summit). The intent of the van service is for persons who might find difficult to the walk to the HEC building. Someone from the valet support staff at this location will drive people over to HEC building.
- At the Merritt garage there will be ten (10) designated parking spaces available on the C-level for visitors or other mobility needs. From this location they can then go through the gate into the alley behind the HEC and enter HEC through the back double doors. A Security officer will be posted in this area beginning 7:15am until 7:00Pm to direct and assist anyone that may require or need assistance. To exit the garage parking voucher is available from the HEC front desk (please note voucher are good for 1-3 hours only).
- For wheelchairs assistance: Please note that wheel chair van is too tall for Merritt garage but you can call the security office for assistance by dialing extension 7847 from internal phone or external number is (510) 763-4001. A Security officer will assist by pushing the wheelchair from Providence to and from HEC.
