Metrohealth Southpoint Garage demolition
Watch the demolition live the weekends of Dec. 15 and 22
Preparations are underway for the demolition of MetroHealth's Southpoint Parking Garage, which is scheduled to take place the weekends of Dec. 15 and 22.
The project will be streamed live on two web cams. One camera is focused on the bridge that connects the garage to the Critical Care Pavilion. The bridge will be removed over a four-hour period beginning at 6 a.m. on Dec. 15.
A crane will be used to do the heavy lifting, lowering the bridge to Southpoint Drive, where it will be dismantled.
Immediately following removal of the bridge, demolition of the Southpoint Garage will begin. A web cam facing the garage from Scranton Road will capture this activity.
The garage is expected to be leveled by the end of the year and cleared by mid-January for construction of the new hospital to begin.
MetroHealth's construction team is working closely with the MetroHealth Police Department, emergency responders and clinical staff to ensure a smooth operation.
