Existing roads and sidewalks around the hospital’s main entrance that were displaced to make room for the construction site will also be repaired, and landscaping work will also be completed during this stage.

This work is expected to take six weeks to complete (weather permitting).

In order to ensure the safety of motorists and pedestrians around the construction, there will be some temporary traffic disruptions around the hospital’s main entrance.

From approximately August 1 to September 14, traffic disruptions around the hospital will include:

Patients and visitors to the hospital are advised to leave earlier than usual to get to their appointments as excavation and paving work may cause brief delays for people trying to access the facility. Motorists are also advised to follow all posted signage and personnel directing traffic.
