Paving work taking place at Cape Breton Regional Hospital next week

Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) is advising people to use caution while paving work is underway at Cape Breton Regional Hospital next week.

Work is expected to begin on Monday, July 22 on the roadways around the hospital. The project involves prep work, patching and paving and includes the corners near the renal dialysis unit and mental health entrance as well as the hospital’s main entrance and the intersection by the Cape Breton Cancer Centre. It is expected to take a week to complete the work.

Staff, patient and visitors may see an increase in traffic around the hospital as well as some detours. Traffic control staff will be onsite to help with traffic flow and directions.

While the work is underway, people are asked to use caution and watch for vehicle and pedestrian traffic around the hospital as well as in and around the parking lots. They are also asked to slow down and use caution on roadways near the hospital and as they enter and exit the parking lots.

People will still be able to access all entrances and drop off/pick up areas at the front and rear of the hospital unless a detour is in place.

NSHA appreciates the public’s patience and cooperation while this work is underway.
