Dauphin Hospital Changes Effective Today
The street in front of the Dauphin Hospital is officially closed until mid-2019.
The block of 3rd St SW between 6th AVE SW and 7th Ave SW is closed to all traffic. That’s the block with the Dauphin Medical Clinic.
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. The city chose to close the street to allow for the construction of the new Emergency Department.
Public access to the hospital is just off Jackson Street. If you need to park the hospital has added more space at the back to accommodate the public.
