Driving Directions to Rush

Construction information

The city of Chicago is replacing the water main lines on Harrison Street between Ashland and Damen Avenues. During this work, Harrison Street will be reduced to two lanes of traffic — one going east and one going west. The construction begins in July and continues through September.

We anticipate delays around our main campus throughout the roadwork and recommend you give yourself extra time when coming to Rush. Please be assured we are working diligently to minimize disruptions. This includes the use of flaggers and added signage to direct traffic, as well more staff to assist with valet parking. Current construction plans will not impact CTA trains.

Harrison Street garage

For the near future, patients and visitors will be able to enter the main garage through the usual entrance on Harrison Street. If any changes in entrance- and exit-ways occur, signage will be prominently displayed and flaggers will be present to direct traffic.

We are asking all our patients and visitors to minimize their use of Harrison Street, whether you are in a vehicle or on foot. Please plan to use the pedestrian bridges on the fourth floor to access our main parking garage and the Tower and Armour Academic Center.

Getting updates

We will notify patients of construction news during appointment reminders, on social media and here on this web page. You may also ask your health care providers and their reception services. Patients may call (888) 352-RUSH to speak to a staff member. We are eager to hear your feedback and to help in any way we can.
