The intersection at Tongass Avenue and Carlanna Lake Road will be closed between 6:30pm and 6:00 am while Secon Construction Company grinds and resurfaces Tongass between the main KGH entrance on Tongass and the West End Fire Station. During the daytime flaggers will control traffic flow and the intersection will be open.

Visitors to the hospital should note there will be no parking along Tongass during construction. No completion date has been set according to information from Secon.
