Going up!


The construction crane for the Joseph & Rosalie Segal Family Health Centre on the VGH campus was installed May 13 to 15. Now that installation is complete, the Willow Street lane has reopened, and on occasion we’ll hear the crane’s horn — but don’t be alarmed. The crane operator is merely using the horn to notify construction site workers of loads being lifted overhead.
