Headache For The Hospital-Memorial Area Construction

For the next six weeks, people who work at or live near Memorial Hospital will experience road construction as the City of Yakima upgrades a water main at the intersection of Walnut and South 28th Avenues.  During this time, Memorial will make good on its promise to its neighbors by closing off its campus as part of the Barge-Chestnut neighborhood Traffic Calming Plan.  The closure is part of Memorial’s 30-year Campus Master Plan agreement with the City.  There will be no construction of additional buildings or expansion of buildings at this time.

 Effective immediately, the hospital will no longer be accessible from the north through the Barge-Chestnut neighborhood.  Instead, visitors and employees are encouraged to enter the hospital from Tieton Drive at the intersections of 28th and 30th Avenues.
