8th Street Construction
Starting this upcoming Monday, May 11, there will be a series of road closures along 8th street that will impact patient and staff access to the front access of the Clinic & Specialty Center and Red Emergency entrance. The closures will happen in phases to try and limit the inconvenience to patients and visitors.
During roadway reconstruction work, Chicago Avenue will be CLOSED between 8th Street and 9th Street. Park Avenue will also be reduced to two lanes during peak hours (6 am to 9 am) and local access will be maintained at all times on 8th Street or on adjacent streets. See the below maps for details.
Schedule of construction:
Phase 1 (May 11-June 7):
Construction in front of the Clinic & Specialty Center and blocking the west side of Chicago Ave. Vehicles will be able to travel west on Chicago Ave. The driveway will still be accessible but will temporarily have gravel.
The driveway will be closed Friday, May 22nd – Monday, May 25th, over Memorial Day weekend. Staff and patients will still be able to access the Clinic & Specialty Center by parking in the ramp for clinic visits or go to the pharmacy.
Phase 2 (May 11-June 7):
Construction in front of the Red Emergency entrance and blocking east side of Chicago Ave. Vehicles will not be able to travel east on Chicago Ave from 8th Street. Alternative temporary surfacing of the driveway will be used in front of the ER so that there continues to be 24/7 access to the ER.
Phase 3 (July 13-July 24):
Construction blocking 8th street at Park Ave blocking traffic heading south. Any vehicles traveling south on 8th street will be detoured at Park Ave.
