As the Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento expansion construction project continues to make progress toward its 2014 completion, there will be road and lane closures around the SMCS campus every once in a while to facilitate the necessary construction work.
From April 26 to May 1, there will be closures on 29th Street and on Capitol Avenue. Following are details:
29th Street Closure
In order to complete work on the new bridge connecting the South Parking Lot to the Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center, 29th Street between L Street and Capitol Avenue will be closed from 7 p.m. Friday to 7 p.m. Saturday.
Capitol Avenue Lane Closures
To facilitate utility work in the street, Capitol Avenue between 28th and 29th streets will have lane closures from Monday, April 29, through Wednesday, May 1. The barriers will begin mid-block so there will be access to the Biba restaurant valet. Here are details for each day:
- The westbound lane and one eastbound lane will be closed from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday, April 29.
- On Tuesday, April 30, and Wednesday, May 1, the westbound lane will be closed from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. on both days.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to construct “the medical campus of the future” in midtown Sacramento.
News 10 reporter Kate Larsen recently toured the Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center and provided a firsthand look at the new hospital and the complete remodel of Sutter General Hospital. News 10 broadcast three different segments. We combined them into a package that you can view by clicking here.
SACRAMENTO — It sounds like the beginning of a joke, but it’s not: A pedestrian bridge will be crawling up J Street early Saturday morning.
The 80-foot-long bridge will be making its way to its final destination at the corner of 29th and L streets and will link the new Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children Center to parking lot for visitors and physicians– one of a series of spans that will connect all of Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento’s comprehensive services on one midtown campus.
The open-air, covered bridge, which was designed by Lionakis, was built off-site in order to minimize traffic interruptions at Sutter Medical Center’s midtown campus, which includes the construction of the Women’s and Children’s Center and a major renovation of Sutter General Hospital. The plan to construct the bridge at another location allowed 29th Street to be closed only on weekends.
The bridge was built at Viking Steel on Elder Creek Road and will be loaded onto a truck and brought up Interstate 5 to J Street. From there, it will turn right onto 29th Street to the corner of L Street. Transporting the bridge will begin at 4 a.m. Saturday and will take up to two hours.
29th Street will be closed beginning at 7 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday to allow crews to attach the bridge to both sides. Once the span is on the site, a crane will lift the 66,000-pound bridge into place and workers will work on Saturday and Sunday to ensure that it is properly secured.

Take time to pause and reflect, meditate or pray in our new Quiet Space at Sutter General Hospital/Ose Adams Medical Pavilion.
The Quiet Space opened Nov. 12 as a place for employees, visitors and patients to renew their spirits through quiet reflection or through a spiritual practice from their faith tradition. The Quiet Space will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is located on the 2nd floor.
Marking another milestone in the creation of the “medical center of the future” in midtown Sacramento, L Street between 28th and 29th Street reopened this morning to vehicular traffic, signaling the completion of exterior construction of the three-story spanning structure that will seamlessly connect Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento’s two acute-care facilities.
The spanning structure is three stories tall and has walkways between Sutter General Hospital and the new Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center on the second, third and fourth floors. In addition, this unique spanning structure includes more than 5,000 square feet of clinical space that will be used for outpatient and other services.
City officials say this is a very unusual spanning structure for Sacramento and that approval was granted for several reasons, including the necessity to safely move patients from one acute-care facility to another, and because the aesthetics match the architecture of the hospitals and the neighboring community. Patients, visitors and staff will be able to cross over L Street on all three levels.
The spanning structure is one of four bridges being constructed in order to connect the entire Sutter Medical Center campus. On Saturday, crews will close 28th Street between L Street and Capitol Avenue in order to construct a bridge that will connect the Sutter Cancer Center/Buhler Specialty Pavilion to Sutter Capitol Pavilion, an outpatient services and medical office building. That work is expected to take four months to complete. The medical center has notified patients and neighbors of both vehicular and pedestrian detours while the bridge is constructed.
