An update on the construction progress for the Old Library 12/18/2018.
Demolition has begun on the North West corner of the building. Contractors are utilizing a high reach excavator to detach the façade and lower to the ground. A water truck with a high-pressure nozzle is wetting down the debris to maintain moisture levels. The water trucks are tracked and logged at the City Water Department after each refill. Contractors will provide traffic control to manage construction vehicles arriving and leaving the site safely.
Delta Engineering is completing the independent third-party sampling and analysis, with air monitors located within the construction zone and two community monitors situated outside of the construction area. Delta completed background sampling prior to the start of demolition and will provide continuous air monitoring for the remainder of the demolition phase.
Although we are working diligently to take the structure down in an efficient and safe manner, we also want to remain sensitive to noise disturbance for our neighbors. As such, we have established contractor working hours from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. No demolition is currently scheduled for Saturdays or Sundays.
