Two roads to close for construction

September 28, 2007

Albany -- Construction work on the new Phoebe Putney Hospital expansion will block off two streets this weekend.

 The 400 block of North Monroe Street between Second and Third Avenue will be closed Saturday and Sunday. Also that block of Second Avenue from North Monroe to Hines Street will be closed for the weekend.

 A huge construction crane is being erected to build the second Medical Tower at Phoebe. 17 truckloads of materials will be brought in to erect the construction tower, and cause the road closures.

Work on that crane started Friday morning, and will continue through the weekend. Those roads are scheduled to be back open Monday.

The five story building is an expansion of Phoebe's Cancer Center. It is scheduled to open in 17 months.
