The 500 block of North Duke Street between Frederick Street and James Street will be closed next weekend to allow crane work connected with Lancaster General Hospital's emergency department expansion.

The closure will take place from 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25, through 9 p.m. Sunday Feb. 27, the city of Lancaster said in a statement.

Local traffic will be detoured via Clay Street, Prince Street and James Street, the city said, while truck traffic will be detoured via McGovern Avenue, Prince Street and Chestnut Street. Flaggers will be on hand to direct traffic.

The 40,000 square foot expansion will give LGH the capacity to serve 140,000 patients a year. Previous reports have put the cost at more than $180 million.
