Traffic Pattern Changing on Scranton Road Due to MetroHealth Construction Project
A new walkway from the MetroHealth Emergency Department to the new hospital under construction is being built along Scranton Road.
Construction of the one-story, floor-to-ceiling, glass-enclosed walkway starts July 7, with excavation and drilling 80 feet into the bedrock to prepare the foundation.
The work in front of MetroHealth’s Emergency Department — between Southpoint Drive and the entrance of the Emergency Department — will narrow Scranton Road into two lanes, one in each direction, until the end of the year. The work will also include an expanded parking lot.
The Emergency Department will still be accessible for patient drop-off and pick-up. Valet services will still be available there.
MetroHealth Police will direct traffic during busy times. All of the work is expected to be done by the end of this year.
MetroHealth continues to try and minimize any inconveniences caused by the new hospital campus construction.
