KAMLOOPS – Residents are advised that there will be intermittent, temporary road closures and traffic rerouting on the Royal Inland Hospital campus ring road to accommodate construction activity on the new Clinical Services Building. These day-long closures will begin Monday, Jan. 19, and will occur periodically, as needs arise, until autumn 2015.
The impact will be primarily to the road along the front of the hospital campus, next to the CSB construction site. 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. There may also be traffic delays to accommodate construction vehicles requiring access to the job site via the hospital’s ring road.
Regular access to the parkade entrance will remain unchanged; vehicles exiting the parkade will be required to use a different traffic pattern. Regular pedestrian access at 3rd Avenue and Columbia Street will also remain unchanged.
Interior Health recognizes 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.
