Work to Begin on CPH’s Cottage Street

POTSDAM, NY – Residents in the vacinity of Canton-Potsdam Hospital (CPH), along with its patients and visitors will be seeing work in progress for the Hospital’s Regional Care Pavilion expansion project beginning Monday, July 11, 2022.

Anyone coming to the Hospital’s main campus at 50 Leroy Street, Potsdam on July 11, 12 or 13 will be encouraged to avoid using Cottage Street to access the parking lot. A section of the CPH-owned portion of the street closest to Leroy Street will be closed for approximately three days. The section of Cottage Street between Waverly Street and the Emergency Department entrance will still be accessible. The least congested entrances to the Hospital’s main campus will be from Grove Street, or off Leroy Street near the Center for Cancer Care.

Visitors and patients going to the General Surgery office at 25 Cottage Street will be able to access the office parking lot via the westernmost entrance/exit. The entrance closest to Leroy Street, and the middle entrance to the lot will not be available.

Should you be parked in the 25 Cottage Street lot and need to cross the street, please exercise caution, be aware of your surroundings, and obey all construction signage.

An additional project will also begin on or around July 11, and will involve the General Surgery parking lot at 25 Cottage Street. This portion of the work will involve the construction of a dumpster pad on the east side of the office building, and will take approximately two weeks.
Parking will be available in the General Surgery office lot while the dumpster site work is being completed. The parking lot entry closest to Leroy Street will remain offline.
