East Lansing Parking Facility Repairs Project
The East Lansing Parking Facility Repairs Project continues in Division Street Garage. Currently, work is focused on expansion joints, control & cove joint caulking, stairwell pans, window sealant, and concrete patching. Some repairs have started in Bailey Street Garage, including shot blasting and sealant. Smaller repair projects have started in Grove and Charles Street Garages. The project is currently on schedule for completion in August.
We are installing the final third of the building structural steel, with expected completion being at the end of next week. The mechanical and plumbing contractor is currently onsite working on layout, installing underground for the slab-on-grade, and overhead layout. We are working on earth work and grading for the first floor to accommodate the first slab-on-grade pour and the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) underground. The concrete slab on decks have been placed on floors 1-5, and we will pour floors 6 and 7 mid-next-week. A concrete pump will be onsite at roughly 6 a.m. those days to start pouring concrete at 7 a.m. Granite installation around the exterior of the building is expected to begin again next week. The fireproofing contractor has begun installing on the second floor and will continue to work up the building.
Albert Ave. remains closed to through traffic. This closure is to remain in effect through the summer and is expected to be removed prior to student move-in for Michigan State University. The lane closures on Abbot Rd. 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 to help ensure safety. The alley is accessible from the north.
