Paving for the Stanton Renewal Project has concluded for 2017. Blasting may continue as needed, and monitors have been installed to ensure that patients are not unduly disrupted. Vibration levels will be closely monitored as blasting moves up Byrne Road and closer to the hospital.
The upper end of Byrne Road remains closed for construction, extending beside the hospital. This closure impacts access to the hospital parking lot. The temporary access road will remain open throughout the winter for two-way traffic, from the base of Byrne Road to the front doors of the hospital. Trail access will be maintained. 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.
Parking spots at Stanton have been restored after the insertion of new communication lines. However, staff is encouraged to carpool or bus whenever possible as parking availability changes frequently throughout the construction process.
Please obey all signage when accessing roads or trails in the surrounding area. The new hospital is a construction zone and gates are not to be moved or opened in any way.
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.
Regular road closure updates will be provided weekly.
