Abatement work continues in City Hall. Abatement work has progressed enough to allow for the temporary reopening of the lower level restrooms. However, the restrooms will only stay open for a few weeks until construction demolition begins in the lower level near the end of the month.
Alongside that work, construction of the elevator shaft has begun. Presently that elevator shaft work consists of demolition to excavate the space for the new elevator shaft. That includes breaking through the 16-inch-thick concrete walls and ceiling of the old bank vault and then hauling those chunks out of the building.
That demolition and construction will take place at night for the next couple weeks to reduce construction noise during operating hours for City Hall visitors and staff.
Visitors to city hall may also notice additional signage and banners offering direction to help visitors find the services they’re looking for.
The final design review of City Center North improvements should advance and allow work to begin with the containment yard going up in about a week. When that happens the main access for that building will shift to the western side of the building — signage will direct visitors to the proper entrance.
Additionally, a dedicated email address has been set up for these remodeling projects. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
