Traffic access changes at RIH as cranes come down

The flow of traffic for patients will be temporarily impacted from Jan. 11 to Jan. 17.

Due to ongoing construction of the Royal Inland Hospital’s patient-care tower, the flow of traffic for patients will be temporarily impacted from Jan. 11 to Jan. 17.

During that period of time, the ring road leading to the patient drop-off roundabout will be down to single-lane traffic to allow for general contractor EllisDon to dismantle the two cranes on the construction site. The short-term parking spaces near the roundabout will also be closed.

Parking at Ponderosa Lodge for physicians and the disabled will also be impacted. Signage will be in place and traffic control flaggers will be at both locations to help with the flow of traffic.

There will be no change in access to the public parkade in the Clinical Services Building or for over-height parking. The work will take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. each day and is expected to be completed by Jan. 17.
