bcPart of a new $40 million parking ramp under construction behind the John R. Oishei Children's Hospital opens Friday, the same day as the new hospital.
The second and third levels of the parking garage, as well as portions of its fourth level, will open at 854 Ellicott St., according to Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus Inc., which owns the ramp. The basement and first level already are open.
The fourth level, expected to be fully complete later this month, has a covered connection linking it to Oishei Hospital's second floor.
The fifth through eighth levels are expected to open in May. When complete, the ramp will have 1,825 parking spaces, doubling the capacity of a former one that was torn down on the Medical Campus.
