A portion of Ellicott Street has closed as part of construction on the new John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital.
Traffic on Ellicott between High and Goodrich streets has shut down as work begins on the bridge to connect the new hospital and Buffalo General Medical Center, Kaleida Health officials announced. Limited foot traffic will be permitted on Ellicott.
The entrance to Buffalo General at the corner of High and Ellicott will remain open.
The street closure is expected to last until the first week of March.
