As part of the ongoing construction of the Royal Inland Hospital’s patient-care tower, access to adjacent Ponderosa Lodge from Fourth Avenue will be temporarily closed beginning Wednesday, Oct. 7.
The entrance at Fourth Avenue and Columbia Street will be closed from Oct. 7 to Oct 14 to allow crews from EllisDon and BC Hydro to complete electrical work on the patient-care tower project.
Access to Ponderosa Lodge will be available using a detour at Fifth Avenue and Columbia Street. Road signs will be posted and a traffic control flagger will be in place to direct vehicles.
The closure will not impact pedestrian traffic crossing Fourth Avenue.
The work will take place between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day, but the entrance will be closed 24 hours per day.
