KAMLOOPS – As site preparation continues for Royal Inland Hospital’s new Clinical Services Building, residents are advised to take note of the following changes when accessing the hospital campus, beginning Thursday, November 7th, and lasting for approximately two weeks:
- All foot traffic using the main staircase at 3rd Avenue and Columbia Street will be rerouted west to the sidewalk alongside St. Ann’s Academy. A pedestrian crosswalk will be marked to provide access to the hospital’s front entrance.
- There will be no changes to vehicle access. However, motorists should be aware that lane closures will be in effect to accommodate site excavation.
- 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 and Columbia will be restored once the current excavation work is complete.
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.
