Construction progresses on new hospital parkade

March 19, 2015

Increased truck traffic may cause slight delays accessing site

RED DEER – The next stage of construction on the new parkade at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre (RDRHC) is set to begin next week.

Slow-moving construction vehicles will be delivering large, precast concrete t-beams to the site. To ensure the safety of motorists and pedestrians in the area, traffic flow on streets immediately surrounding the hospital, as well as pedestrian access to the site, will be temporarily rerouted.

Traffic disruptions around the hospital will include:

All construction activity will comply with City of Red Deer noise and traffic bylaws.

Patients and visitors are advised to leave at least 10 minutes earlier than usual to get to their appointments. Motorists are asked to please slow down when approaching or driving in construction areas and obey all posted signs and personnel directing traffic. Pedestrians are also asked to please keep to posted sidewalks for their safety around construction traffic.
