North Duke Street Detour – Nov. 12 – 14

November 9, 2021

Construction work on the Emergency Department expansion project at Lancaster General Hospital will require traffic detours and road closures during the weekend of Nov. 12- 14, weather permitting. This work depends very much on the cooperation of the weather. As such, the back-up date is the following weekend (Nov. 19-21).

Beginning 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12, until the early evening hours of Sunday, Nov. 14, a large 500-ton crane positioned on Duke Street will lift and move large steel beams for the rooftop of LGH’s future Emergency Department. During this time, traffic on the 500 block of North Duke Street will be restricted.

To avoid the 500 block of North Duke Street, traffic signs positioned at Duke and McGovern streets will detour traffic to North Prince Street. Traffic will then travel to Prince Street to Chestnut Street, to return to Duke Street. Local traffic on Duke Street will continue, with the exception of the 500 block of North Duke Street. A map of the traffic detour is below.

Ambulance traffic and helipad operations will continue as normal during the weekend. However, the following restrictions and changes will occur in the 500 block of North Duke Street:

  • No public traffic access.
  • No on-street parking.
  • Access to the Lancaster General Downtown Pavilion and Urgent Care will be available via North Christian Street. Signage at Duke and Frederick streets will direct traffic.
  • No pedestrian access on the east side of the 500 block of North Duke Street.

For more information or questions regarding the street closure and traffic detour during the weekend of Nov. 12-14, please contact Construction Project Manager Cody Bost at cbost@benchmarkgc.com or (717) 826-3711.
