Drivers asked to use Armstrong entrance until October 31

Beginning on Thursday, October 27 at 6:00 p.m., the laneway that leads to Kingston General Hospital’s main Kidd-Davies entrance will be closed to vehicles while it undergoes asphalt and concrete repairs. This important work will improve safety as it will allow KGH to even out the pavement and fix potholes.

The main entrance doors will remain open to pedestrians while the work is completed. Vehicles that are dropping off or picking up patients and visitors are asked to use the Armstrong entrance located off of Lower University Avenue.

Security staff will be stationed at both the main entrance and the Armstrong entrance to direct traffic and assist patients and visitors in getting in and out of the hospital.

“This is important work that must be done to continually maintain our facilities and support outstanding patient care,” says Allan McLuskie, Director of Facilities Management. “We have planned this project so that it will have as little impact on patients and families as possible.”

The laneway will re-open to regular traffic on the morning of Monday, October 31.
