New roundabout planned for hospital entrance
Construction begins Aug. 6 on Stageline Road to build a new roundabout located at Hudson Hospital & Clinics campus entrance. City and hospital officials say the design is expected to ensure the safety of patients, visitors, and through traffic on Stageline Road. The new roundabout has been determined to be the safest traffic system for entering and exiting the health campus, and for through traffic on Stageline Road. Construction should be completed in mid-September.
Access to the hospital for patients and visitors will continue to be available using the hospital's previous entrance on Stageline Road. Signage will be available to guide traffic to and from the health campus.
Stageline Road will be closed just east of the hospital entrance to O'Neil Road. Between O'Neil Road and old Hwy. 35 the road will be closed to through traffic (open to local residents only). Signage will be provided for traffic entering Stageline from Carmichael and old Hwy. 35. Traffic between Carmichael and old Hwy. 35 will be detoured to Hanley Road.
Hudson Hospital's new medical office building is scheduled to open in December of this year, with a community grand opening event planned for spring of 2014. The new medical office building will provide additional services and providers to Hudson and surrounding communities.
