Construction Update 2-08-17
**Please note: The Board of Water and Light work scheduled for overnight has been postponed. We will update you when it is rescheduled.**
Along with utility work this week, more vertical progress is expected as work to install columns and stairwell walls continues. A tower crane is being installed on its base and will soon begin to be part of the daily operation as the project continues to rise. The work site is very active as over 14,000 hours of labor have already been put into the project by the various trades. Safety continues to be a priority for all involved.
Truck traffic near the site continues as materials (especially concrete) and equipment are transported to and from the site. City staff is monitoring area roadways to ensure proper cleanup occurs, especially as weather changes can cause muddy conditions that need to be managed properly. The construction company also continues to examine the site to mitigate any impacts to the local community.
