Construction Updates: 3-07-2022


MSUFCU East Lansing Building Located at 311 Abbot

Precast on the east tower is finished. Precast installation will be paused until frost laws are lifted. While frost laws are in effect, structural steel installation will begin March 7, starting on the east side of the building. This will continue through April 2022 with expected completion in early May. Trucks will be arriving daily with loads of steel. The lane closure on Albert Ave. will be utilized to take the deliveries, but there is potential for trucks to back up on Evergreen Ave. as the panels are being installed. Backups will be addressed as soon as possible as they occur. The fence along Albert Ave. toward Evergreen Ave. has been reworked to allow the crane to be relocated at the corner of the alley and Albert Ave. The fire suppression contractor will be onsite installing a temporary fire suppression system standpipe this week. The permanent power has been established on the site and the transformer has been protected. Underground mechanical and electrical will recommence at the end of March, with the first slab-on-grade concrete pour is expected to take place in early April.

The lane closure on Abbot Rd. has been reinstated and will remain in effect for the foreseeable future. The westbound lane closure on Albert Ave. has been installed and will remain in effect for the foreseeable future.

The south access to the alley off Albert Ave. will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians for the duration of overhead work for safety reasons. The alley is accessible from the north.
