Work continues to ramp up on the columns and stairwells this week. The auger cast piles work are nearing completion as they approach the 500 mark, and dozens of columns have now been poured. The tower crane is now installed and part of the daily operations. As various trades continue to increase their presence on the site, safety continues to be the #1 priority for all involved.
Truck traffic near the site is expected to increase again in the near future 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.
