MDH Announces Start of Covered Walkway Project

MACOMB, Ill. – McDonough District Hospital announced construction work of Phase 1 of the Covered Walkway project has begun at the main entrance to both Health Services Building 1 & 2.

The project will provide sheltered walkways from the edge of the sidewalk of both buildings to the front doors – helping patients stay out of the elements during inclement weather.

Phase 1 began as the concrete will be replaced from the sidewalk edge leading into each building. Both building main entrances will remain open during the entirety of the project.

Construction will close off half of one side of the walkway entrance, then when that half is complete the other half will close down for the building improvements to better serve patients visiting the MDH campus.

During the course of the construction project, patients can safely enter HSB 1 and HSB 2 through the temporary enclosures.

The majority of work will take place after regular business hours Monday-Friday and also during the weekend.

Phase 2 will consist of the walkway construction. The project is anticipated to conclude next April.
