Royal Inland Hospital – advisory for motorists

June 06, 2014 - 3:30 PM

KAMLOOPS – As construction activity increases for Royal Inland Hospital’s new Clinical Services Building, there will be the potential for heavier traffic around the hospital campus road, beginning Friday, June 6, and lasting throughout the summer months.

There will be no changes to vehicle access, but motorists should be aware that there may be traffic delays to accommodate construction vehicles requiring access to the job site via the hospital’s loop road. Motorists are advised to use extreme caution, and to slow down for pedestrians at all times. Please obey traffic signs and yield to flag people.

Regular pedestrian access at 3rd Avenue and Columbia Street will remain unchanged.

Interior Health is aware of the inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate the public’s patience as this measure is temporary and necessary for work on the Clinical Services Building, which will expand patient care services at Royal Inland Hospital. Updates will be provided as new stages in the project are reached.
