POUGHKEEPSIE, N. Y. -- Plans are moving ahead on Vassar Brothers Medical Center's proposed 264-room inpatient pavilion now that Poughkeepsie's Common Council agreed to hand over a portion of Livingston Street as an entrance to the center, according to Time Warner Cable News.

The public can still use the part of Livingston Street between Lincoln Avenue and Fox Street, but city officials are giving the hospital the ability to use it as an entrance to the 696,000-square-foot pavilion. Hospital officials say having that entrance will reduce hospital-related traffic on city streets, says Time Warner Cable News.

Construction on the $466 million project, which still needs the approval of the city's Planning Board, is expected in September, Time Warner Cable News reports.
