Hospital parking changes

Changes to the hospital parking will take effect the week of July 14, 2014.

As construction of the new Lakes District Hospital and Health Centre continues, changes to the hospital parking will take effect the week of July 14, 2014. During this time utility crews will be on site to install underground utilities to service the new facility.

The changes to the parking lot of the existing hospital include:

Single laning of the current hospital entrances as utilities are installed. Signage and flag persons will be utilized during periods of work where the main entrance is impacted.

Realignment of the hospital entrance. The new hospital entrance will begin near the current parking entrance as detailed on the attached drawing. Once this road is installed the current hospital entrance will be closed. This will allow construction crews to complete additional work at the new hospital site.

Beginning July 14 excavation for this utility work will begin and heavy machinery will be working in the existing parking lot. Please take care in the area and follow the direction of the traffic control persons.

Questions regarding these changes can be directed to Paul Rudecki, Northern Health Lakes District Hospital and Health Centre project director via email at hello@northernhealth.ca.
