Washington Hospital Traffic Advisory: February 8
Emergency Room Expansion to Cause Civic Center Drive Road Closure
On Wednesday, February 8, the Fremont Police Department will intermittently close westbound and eastbound turn lanes from Mowry Avenue onto Civic Center Drive between 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Please be advised that Washington Hospital's Emergency Room will continue to operate as normal during the road closure. Patients and visitors will need to use the main entrance of the Hospital to access the ER and its waiting area.
Traffic light boards and temporary signage will be placed at Washington Hospital vehicle entrance points and security staff members will be onsite to provide directional support to vehicles at the Center for Joint Replacement entrance (Civic Center Drive) and Washington West entrance (2500 Mowry Avenue).
Additionally, the sidewalk along Civic Center Drive and the Emergency Room entrance will be blocked to pedestrians at periodic times throughout the day.
The intermittent road closure is being conducted to allow construction vehicles to work on Washington Hospital's Emergency Room expansion project.
