Construction begins March 16 on Greehey Campus

Research Road, the main thoroughfare through the Greehey campus, and portions of lots 16 and 23 to close March 16; some employees, patients and visitors to relocate to other lots

As part of UT Health San Antonio’s continued growth and expansion, a construction project will begin March 16 to run chilled water lines from the new chilled water plant on Charles Katz Drive to the existing plant on the Greehey campus.

The project is expected to take about five months, and will require closure of portions of lots 16 and 23 and a section of Research Road beginning March 16. A portion of Charles Katz Road will also be closed this summer.

Some reserve and patient/visitor parking spaces in lots 16 and 23, will be relocated. About 25 employee reserve space holders who park in lots 16 and 23, will be temporarily relocated to open spaces in lots 23 and 30. These employees will also have the option to park in the new Katz garage, also known as Garage G.

Four patient/visitor reserve spaces for the Glenn Biggs Institute for Alzheimer’s and Neurodegenerative Diseases and the Imaging Center in the McDermott Clinical Sciences Building — located at 8403 Floyd Curl Drive — will be relocated to Lot 16A in front of the Research Administration Building. Three handicapped and two official business spaces in the row next to the South Texas Research Facility will be moved to Lot 16B.

Reserve space holders who are affected by the construction are being notified by UT Health San Antonio Parking Services about the need to relocate their parking spaces.

Beginning March 16, a section of Research Road — the main throughfare through the Greehey Campus — will be closed for the duration of the project and traffic will be rerouted through Lot 16B, in front of the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute.

This summer, part of Charles Katz Drive will be closed for two weeks to accommodate work on this project. A traffic detour and wayfinding plan will be published 30 days prior to the Charles Katz Drive closure to identify alternate routes.

Please find the locations of the affected parking areas and road closures on the map below. For more information about the road closures or parking during this project, please email the parking office at or call 210-567-2800.
