Traffic near Memorial Hospital Central to be altered while crews replace boilers

People traveling new Memorial Hospital Central over the next few days may want to watch out for a few more traffic cones.

Traffic will be altered while the hospital embarks on a $5-million project to install two new boilers.

Two lanes of Boulder Street will be closed during the installation, as will Children’s View from Boulder Street to the parking garage, according to a release by Memorial Hospital. Traffic leaving the garage can only turn right onto Boulder Street, and people can only enter the parking garage via a road on the west side of the hospital called Bob Peters Grove.

Traffic will be affected from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday, as well as Monday through Wednesday.

The boilers, which still work, are being replaced because parts are no longer available for the 41-year-old machines, according to the hospital.
