3rd St SW between 6th AVE SW and 7th Ave SW is closing until halfway through 2019. That’s the block with the Dauphin Medical Clinic. The city needed to close the street to allow for the construction of the new Emergency Department.
New “no parking” zones are also going to make people find alternative places to park their cars. The city is adding these zones on 7th Ave SW and 2nd St SW. The reason they need to add these are to help emergency services get to the hospital during the construction. Parking has been added at the back of the hospital to accommodate the public.
Public access to the hospital is just off Jackson Street.
