Construction of the new Comox Valley Hospital parkade will require a temporary closure of the public walkway along the hospital project’s north perimeter starting in September.
The construction contractor, Graham, maintained the walkway during excavation of the parkade footprint, but the walkway will be temporarily closed September 15, 2015 during construction of the parkade, a nearby retaining wall, and installation of a new sanitary sewer line.
The walkway is anticipated to reopen March 1, 2016.
The immediate work involved removal of an existing chain link fence to make way for the parkade construction. Some trees and other vegetation will be temporarily relocated out of the construction zone. They will be replanted later as part of the overall site landscaping plan.
The North Island Hospitals Project apologizes for any inconvenience this temporary closure may cause, and we thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
