Roundabout Roundup – May 16 Update

Michigan Street Near Memorial Closed May 17-Sept. 9

The City of South Bend’s Smart Streets roundabout construction near Memorial Hospital is in high gear! Keep the following in mind as you travel to or near the Memorial Hospital campus this spring and summer.

  • Michigan Street is closed between Park Lane and Marion Street.
    • There is a “local traffic only” lane going north on Michigan from Lasalle.
      • Local traffic includes those traveling to the Memorial associate parking/Purple Lot south of Marion as well as buildings on the east side of Michigan such as the Leighton Center, Skyway Building, E. Blair Warner and LaPetite, for example.
  • Detour to Memorial Hospital and sites on the west side of Michigan Street from east or south: LaSalle Avenue to Lafayette Boulevard
  • Detour to Memorial Hospital and sites on the west side of Michigan Street from the north: Either Riverside to Lafayette or Park Lane to Main Street
  • Bartlett Street Garage will only be accessible coming from the west on Bartlett.
  • 100 Navarre Place Garage will be accessible from Navarre Street during construction.

Walking around campus

  • There will be a temporary crosswalk from the Purple Lot (associate parking) south of Marion Street.
  • There will be a crosswalk south of the Bartlett/Michigan intersection.
  • The sidewalk along 100 Navarre Place/Michigan Street will close for further improvements.

Helpful Reminders

  • Plan on allowing plenty of time to reach your destination and park.
  • Drive carefully. Many of the detours take drivers right past Madison Elementary School, a playground, a duck pond and tennis courts. The safety of everyone (drivers, kids on playgrounds, pedestrians, and even ducks!) should be everyone’s top priority.
