There will be fewer parking at the main entrance of Royal Jubilee Hospital for a month while construction crews work to make more spots for visitors.
Construction work will start July 11, and throughout the construction period, 26 parking stalls in front of the Emergency Department and Diagnostic & Treatment Centre will be impacted on a rotational basis, according to Island Health.
About a dozen new parking stalls are expected to be added.
Parking will be reduced for various phases of the project in order to perform the work in a safe manner. At any given time, 14 parking spots could be out of service.
People with disabilities will be given priority for parking during this time and there will also be Parking Ambassadors and flag persons on site to assist patients and visitors.
Once completed, there will be increased parking for all patients, clients and visitors arriving at the main entrance, as well as improved access for those with disabilities, improved pedestrian and vehicle flow, and reduced vehicular congestion.
The construction is expected to last until August 12, weather dependent.
