Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center announced today that a portion
of the walking trail around the perimeter of the hospital campus will
be closed until mid-June. The closure is a result of construction traffic
and potential safety hazards related to the ongoing construction on the
west side of the campus.
The hospital is adding two parking lots for employees on the west side.
This addition will reduce congestion and allow for convenient parking
for patients and visitors in the lots near the front of the hospital.
Another factor in the closure is the rerouting of County Road 154. HRRMC
is constructing a new road to make accessibility from Highway 291 to the
hospital campus and employee parking lots safer. The road will provide
a separate entrance for future services located west of the hospital,
allow staff and service vehicles to access the campus from the west, and
keep the hospital’s main driveway from becoming overly congested.
