An update on the construction progress for the Old Library 12/21/2018.
New York State Department of Labor (NYS DOL) was onsite on December 17th and 18th to perform site inspections. DOL observed the working practices and inspected worker certifications and licenses.
All air monitors are correctly placed and running.
The North West corner of the building at the 1st column line was dismantled, and a water mister was brought in in place of using the water cannon on the truck due to the high volume of water the water cannon was using. All debris was wetted using the high-pressure water mister, and the water truck is currently being refilled 2x per day at the City Water Department. Construction and debris are padded down, wet with water, and covered nightly with 6-millimeter fire retardant poly.
No work will be performed on December 24th and 25th. Demolition will resume on 12/26/2018.
