Construction notice: Nov. 18, 2019 to Feb. 27, 2020 -- Replacing the sprinkler system the Atrium parking garage; expect traffic delays

SickKids is upgrading the sprinkler system on the P1 level of Atrium Parking Garage.

Work started Nov. 18, 2019 with an anticipated end date of Feb. 27, 2020.  Please prepare for delays entering and exiting the Atrium parking garage (the main hospital garage with entrance off of Elm St.).

During construction, families and visitors should give themselves extra time to park to ensure they are on time for appointments.

Traffic updates -- here’s what you need to know:

Directional signage: It may change as construction continues. Please stay alert and drive slowly, as traffic flow will change as construction continues.
Cordoned-off areas on Level P1: Do not park in these areas. They are off-limits for repair work and your safety.
Traffic lights have been installed to indicate where to share the lane and safely manage the flow of traffic. Drivers must only proceed when it’s a green light; proceed with caution when it’s a yellow light; and come to a full stop when it’s a red light.
Expect traffic delays: Please give yourself extra time to park to ensure you are on time for your appointments and meetings, especially if you are coming or leaving during rush hours.

Parking garage’s automated entrance
• As always, when entering or exiting the garage, drivers should proceed with caution and follow the signage and lights so that the door sensors can safely open and close as needed.
Hours of work

Drivers may note that the first phase of the construction project has been completed; the ramp from P1 to P2 will return to its original configuration (estimated Jan. 7), which will ease traffic flow. Our Infrastructure Renewal team regularly reviews traffic flow configurations to help address feedback from customers and to make adjustments to help minimize disruptions wherever possible.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.
