The week of June 10th will be similar to last week. The work on the east end will continue with the demolition and removal of the concrete planters, and then shift to bank alley. The excavators and jack hammers being used for the demolition can be loud, and you may feel some vibrations in your building. Please contact us if you have any concerns.
At some point in the next couple weeks, two new north-south pedestrian crossings will replace the current crossings. One will be located between Benjamin Peters and Race Office Supply and the other will be between Body Gear and Jillian’s Drawers. The crossings are being prepared to be paved with asphalt. A notice will be posted on this site before the asphalt work starts.
Also in the next couple of weeks, the street lights on the Commons are going to be reorganized to allow for more even spacing and consistent light levels. Construction gates will be installed at the pedestrian crossings and at each entrance to allow construction vehicles to move through the site.
Please be aware that because it is a construction site, at any time pedestrians may be rerouted to one side of the Commons or asked to wait while construction vehicle(s) move through a pedestrian crossing. These disruptions will be temporary and should only last a few minutes. We thank you for your patience and cooperation during this important work.
