Work on bridge connecting hospitals to close section of Ellicott Street

Starting Monday, Ellicott Street will close to traffic between High and Goodrich Streets, with foot traffic on the street also limited.

The action is a safety precaution as work begins on a bridge that will connect the new John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital with Buffalo General Medical Center. The entrance to Buffalo General will remain open. Handicap access is also available at Gates Vascular Institute’s North Street valet entrance or Buffalo General’s High Street valet entrance.

Handicap transport vans should use Buffalo General’s C-building entrance on High Street.

Ellicott is scheduled to reopen in March.
