Construction of the $14 million expansion of Boone Hosital has forced the closing of the sidewalk on William Street between Bass and Broadway. A previous newsletter highlighted that Boone Hospital is in the process of adding a patient tower and parking garage on William Street. Work on the five-level, 900 space garage broke ground early last month. The garage project is progressing according to plans and is estimated for completion in October 2008. Work on the patient bed tower is scheduled to begin next fall.
