Road work associated with the Stanton Renewal Project is ongoing. The vast majority of blasting is now complete. Existing closures will remain until mid-August while finishing and paving work is completed. Blasting monitors will remain in place for the time being.
The upper end of Byrne road remains closed for construction, extending beside the hospital. This closure impacts access to the hospital parking lot. A temporary access road will remain open for two way traffic; from the base of Byrne road to the front doors of the hospital. The city bus stop beside the front entrance of the hospital has been relocated slightly to the other side of the doors so that full bus service can continue.
The South East sidewalk closest to the construction area also remains closed, but may open shortly. Closed areas are highlighted in yellow on the attached map, and will be clearly identified with signage and fences. In the event of an emergency please follow the path indicated on the signage when exiting the south-east emergency exit.
Work is underway on the creation of a new route for Frame Lake Trail. Please obey all trail markers for the detour.
The City of Yellowknife is currently repaving the trail, which will result in intermittent closures. These closures are unrelated to work on the Stanton Renewal project, and are outside of our control.
Boreal Health Partnership staff continues to work closely with the City of Yellowknife and the Fire Department to ensure emergency access to the hospital is maintained. Please continue to obey all signage and redirections while the roadwork is ongoing.
Thank you for your ongoing patience with the construction required for the Stanton Renewal Project and for helping to keep the patients informed. We will continue to try to build improvements with as little disruption to existing services as possible. If the situation changes, we will update you as quickly as possible.
