Fast facts: Travel distances from the Dow’s Lake LRT station to the hospital

The highline through the parking garage and rooftop park

The design team considers a wide range of factors while creating the site plan, including factors like the fixed location of the LRT line. They’ve created easy-to-follow pedestrian routes along the shortest possible walking distances between the transit line, the parking garage, and the main hospital. To increase accessibility along these routes, there will be rest points with seating, and mobility aids like moving sidewalks.
