LIBERTY - The site plan for the new Casey County Hospital appears to be in order.
Representatives of the hospital, Parsons Corp. and JRA & Associates reviewed plans for drainage, lighting and a helipad Wednesday with the City Council.
Jack Lowe, project manager, said the new facility will be up and running before the current hospital is demolished.
He said a helipad will be located at the site and will be built to state regulations. Lighting of the area will not be in use unless a helicopter is landing. Lowe said some trees will be left on the site to buffer sound of the helicopter and shouldn't cause damage to roofs of nearby houses.
The visitors parking area will be accessible from Wolford and College streets and the ambulance traffic will enter from the same route. There will be 99 parking spaces compared to 60 current spaces.
