Progress being made on hospital parkade

  • Apr. 1, 2015 3:42 p.m.

The next stage of construction on the new parkade at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre (RDRHC) is underway. 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 delivery trucks staging along 52nd Ave. west of the hospital. Street parking will be closed. Motorists are advised to access the hospital from 50A Ave. to the east to avoid heavy truck traffic.

Access to the hospital’s main entrance and public parking lots will also be from the east only (off 50A Ave.); the west access (onto 52nd Ave.) will be for exiting the site. Closure of the southwest portion of 39th St. including the sidewalk – only local residential traffic will be allowed access.

Red Deer Transit bus stops along 52nd Ave. and 39th St. will be closed. Those looking to utilize transit to reach the hospital will be able to access bus stops on 50A Ave. which will be served by Route 1.

Motorists are asked to slow down when approaching or driving in construction areas and obey all posted signs and personnel directing traffic.
