The Zero Sort recycling container will be temporarily replaced with another container, which will be located in the parking lot across the delivery entrance driveway. Environmental Services staff will need to access it from both sides; therefore, parking spots will be blocked off. Traffic through the delivery entrance during this project needs to proceed slowly and with caution due to the crane, staging, deliveries, recycling and other activity.

October 11, 2013 — “Idle Reduction” Grant Project
Rutland Regional Medical Center's Facilities team is working on a partially funded grant project called “Idle Reduction”, designed to reduce ambulance emissions. There will be three idle reduction stations located outside the ambulance garage area, which means the existing fencing on the east side of the ambulance garage must be relocated, and a retaining wall erected to support the new Idle Reduction Stations. Therefore, curbing, a retaining wall, and fencing have to be built.
Excavation and construction on the West Side of Stratton Road will begin on October 11 and last for approximately one week. The circle will be closed to vehicle traffic most of this time (it will reopen following construction), but the area will remain open to foot traffic.
We understand that this is an inconvenience, but it is work that is necessary, and these areas will open up again as soon as possible. Security will be doing additional monitoring of the area to ensure that everyone is safe. Thank you for your cooperation.
