Phoebe Putney has announced a change to the entrances to the medical offices on Meredyth Drive that might affect your drive.

Officials with Phoebe say that on Friday, September 7, 2012, traffic patterns on Meredyth Drive will change as a new entrance to One Meredyth Place will be opened and an existing entrance will be closed permanently.

Drivers will now turn onto Nancy Lopez Lane to enter the parking lot at the front of the building say officials with Phoebe. Additional parking spaces will be opened as well to accommodate your patients and patrons. It will also allow for a better flow of traffic in the area.

Hospital officials say that the public's safety is a main concern during these changes. They are asking that drivers be aware of the new traffic patterns.

Beginning on October 1, the entire parking lot will be open, adding even more additional parking in advance of the grand opening of the Phoebe Digestive Health Center, which is scheduled for October 28.
