today is the day two of construction and kimt news three's annalisa pardo joins us live to with how the construction is impacting first responders. the construction here on second street extends all the way here to st mary's campus, so we wanted to know, when traffic is increased and seconds count, how can ambulances get to the emergency room. i would hope mayo clinic would have it on their radar that they need alternative routes for everything because i think there will be an impact on that. and this construction has been on medical officials radar. there are three routes to get to the emergency room. with construction and congestion at the second street entrance, ambulances can still get to the e?r from 6th s southest or 4th street. gold cross says they also opticons in their ambulances, which helps them change traffic lights in their favor to get to the e?r faster in extreme situations. gold cross also says they work closely with rochester public works and are often invited to planning meetings so they can plan and adjust for we also reached out to rochester police department to see if its doing anything extra to control traffic in this congested area. they say they're not doing anything specific. but officers are always cautious aound construction sites, and will stop by when they can.
