Starting on Friday 11/2, contractors will be working on a new hospital water main on Mt. Vernon Ave. The northbound lane of Mt. Vernon (where it intersects with the hospital driveway) will be closed on Friday because of construction and there will be flagmen to direct traffic. Friday construction will take place between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. A few houses will also be without water between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. while construction is underway. The addresses are 105 Rockingham St. and 332 – 382 Mt. Vernon Ave. The effected houses have been notified by the water department. The construction will involve trucks, excavators, pavement cutting equipment, and jackhammers. Neighbors will hear noise from this equipment and some dust will be present.

Vernon. Saturday construction will take place between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. The contractors plan to have the line completely installed by late Saturday afternoon.

Tree Removal and New Trailer Installation

Tree Removal and New Trailer Installation

Contractors will be removing a tree that’s currently located next to the LeChase Trailer on Highland Hospital property near Bellevue Dr. The tree is being removed because it is dying and is a safety hazard. Its removal will also make room for a new trailer that will be located next to the LeChase Trailer. The tree will be removed on Friday, Oct. 5 between 7 a.m. and noon. Noise from chainsaws being used for the project can be expected during this time period.

On Monday, Oct. 8, a new sewer line will be installed for the new trailer. The construction area is currently marked out with spray paint on the pavement along the driveway of the main hospital entrance. Access will be restricted to the South Entrance of the hospital for the week from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. as this work takes place. Access to the private driveway off of the hospital’s main entrance will not be restricted.

On Tuesday, Oct. 16, the new trailer is expected to be installed. Access will again be restricted for the day from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. while the trailer is being moved into position and anchored into place.

In anticipation of additional renovations on Highland’s campus and the need for more office space, a second trailer is being added on the Bellevue side of the hospital. The new trailer is expected to be installed in mid-September next to the LeChase trailer that’s already in place. The hospital anticipates it will be there until late 2022.
