Wausau Campus Renovation Updates 

September 16, 2019

Renovations on Gardenside Crossing Wing (C-Wing)

Renovations have begun inside the Wausau Campus on Gardenside Crossing, Side 1. Some may know as “C-Wing” or “C-Unit”. This is the future home of Lake Side Recovery during construction and demolition of the E-Wing of the building. Renovations will continue for the next 3 weeks approximately. The area is sealed off and there should be no contractor traffic inside the NCHC hallways. There will be construction noises and contractors in the south side of Gardenside for the next few weeks. We apologize for any disruptions as we make these internal renovations.

Construction Equipment Traffic and Mount View Care Center Entrance/Exit

Construction traffic will be fairly consistent now in the east side of the construction site over to the North Lay down area in the field. This includes the area between the Mount View Care Center parking lot (purple flag) and NCHC parking lot (yellow flag) that was formerly the bus lane. Please see bright green areas on map below labeled “Construction Traffic Only”.

Loaders, dump truck, pick-up trucks and semi tractors delivering materials will be driving through that area regularly from now until the end of the project(s). Please use caution as you exit the MVCC Parking lot main parking area. Traffic exiting the MVCC Parking lot will no longer be able to use the driveway that looped around near the bus lane as this is a construction road now (marked in green below). Please look for construction cross traffic at the MVCC entrance.

Bus Stop at Mount View Care Center Front Entrance at Purple Flag is Closed.

Effective immediately, the Bus Stop at the front entrance of Mount View Care Center at the PURPLE FLAG will be closed. Metro Ride Buses will no longer be stopping at this location due to the additional time to maneuver construction zones and the impact on their route schedules.

The Bus Stop at the front of Outpatient Services at the YELLOW FLAG will remain open with regularly scheduled buses arriving and departing with no change to the bus schedule.

Visitors arriving and departing to MVCC will need to use the interior of the building to get to the bus stop at the YELLOW FLAG and should allow additional time to catch their bus.

There will not be access to get to the bus stop from MVCC to the Yellow Flag walking on the outside of the building. The sidewalk and driveway in front of Lakeside Recovery will be blocked with fencing for through traffic and pedestrians.

Yellow Flag Parking Lot off of Lake View Drive

Construction Fencing is being installed August 7 in the YELLOW FLAG parking lot area. ALL EMPLOYEES SHOULD BE PARKING IN THE REAR PARKING LOT AREA to allow space for visitors.

Please do not park in spaces that are not marked as parking spaces. Several cars have been parking at the end cap of rows and in non-designated spaces.

Traffic Flow in Yellow Flag Parking Lot

Effective immediately, the traffic flow in the YELLOW FLAG Parking Lot has been altered. Traffic should be considered 2-way traffic in all rows of parking. Please watch for signage that will direct traffic. Please inform visitors of the changes to parking and traffic flow during construction. Do not drive in grass areas or around construction vehicles.

Renovation Fencing and Construction Preparation Beginning Wednesday August 7, 2019

Construction fencing will be arriving on Wednesday, August 7 and will be installed near Outpatient Services and Lakeside Recovery areas. Please be aware of changes to parking lots and traffic flow. There will be changes to the traffic flow in and out of the front parking lot are near the yellow flag. Inform our patients and clients of these changes taking place. Facilities will be working with our NCHC Communications Team to get traffic and parking changes out to staff and visitors. Please do not cross into fenced in areas or use entrance exits that are contained within the fenced in areas.

Please use the map below to review areas that will be fenced, marked with red and blue dotted lines. Note that there will be construction traffic entering at the NCHC Main Campus Driveway off of Lake View Drive that will be shared with construction traffic, however employees and visitors will not be able to follow the green construction traffic marked below, and instead will be in a revised traffic pattern entering the campus in the parking area closest to the building. Please watch for signage throughout the fencing installation process.

If you have questions or feedback, please contact us!

Temporary fencing, as indicated in the drawing above, is fencing that is portable and not fixed to the ground. Temporary fencing will change as the renovations and construction needs change.

Permanent Fencing, as indicated in the drawing above, is fencing that is fixed in place and not portable. It will remain in place until the end of the renovation/construction period. The "Construction Lay-Down" area marked above "with Permanent Fencing" is the long-term staging area for all equipment and materials. This fencing will be removed when the Wausau Campus renovations are completed.
