Currently, the earthwork contractor is removing the contaminated soils and establishing a consistent grade for the deep foundation contractor. Granger anticipates it will mobilize the deep foundation contractor by the end of next week, and start the deep foundation installation the following week. Deep foundation installation typically takes between 7-10 days to complete with an expected completion date of November 26. Mobilization and installation of concrete foundations and footings will begin the week of November 29 and is estimated to take 5-6 weeks to complete. The lane closure on Abbot Rd. is expected to be reinstalled within the next week.

Lansing Board of Water and Light (BWL) is currently working on power modifications in the alleyway with an expected completion date of November 12. All of the work performed by BWL is contingent on weather and utility crew availability.
