Hospital project results in access changes
The parking lot for visitors and staff at Ponderosa Lodge on Columbia Street will be closed for about eight weeks as preliminary work begins at nearby Royal Inland Hospital for the clinical-services building.
Alternate arrangements have been made and information is available at the lodge.
The construction also requires the east staircase that connects the two facilities to be closed.
It will eventually be removed as part of the work and relocation of utilities. The sidewalk in front of the lodge between Third and Fourth avenues will also be closed, with pedestrians rerouted to the main staircase and walkway at the intersection of Columbia Street and Third Avenue.
Vehicle access to the hospital will not be affected at this time.
