|St. Louis County Court Construction Update|
Here is the latest news for the County Courts Project:
Thank You for Your Patience
As of October 28:
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY UPDATE
Preparations are being made to attach precast exterior wall sections. Plumbers and electricians are laying out and beginning to install their runs. In the garage, new shafts are being created for elevators, stairs, and to circulate fresh air. Demolition crews are breaking up the plaza north of the courthouse, and continuing demolition of the interior of 111 S. Meramec.
If you are curious about something that you see and want to ask questions just call Justin Ryder (contact info below) and the Courts Project Team will do their best to answer!
“Ground penetrating radar” is used to locate rebar and tendons in the concrete floor slabs so workers don’t damage the rebar when they cut holes for plumbing and electrical lines.
To make more room for construction activity and material staging, KCI has closed all northbound lanes of S. Meramec between Bonhomme and Carondelet. One southbound lane and the west sidewalk remain open. The Courts Garage can be accessed from that single southbound lane which starts at Carondelet. This closure will be in effect for the remainder of the project.
NORTH PLAZA DEMOLITION
Jackhammering on the west side of the plaza is mostly complete and moving to the east side. Entry to the Courthouse should not be affected. This work is expected to continue for one to two weeks on the east half.
METROBUS FREE RIDE ZONE
Metro has updated their departure timetables! Contact Justin if you need the updated version (revised as of 8-1-14).
There is currently a single two-way signalized ramp between the P4 and P5 levels of the Courts garage. The signal is timed and changes every 60 seconds. If you approach the ramp and the signal is RED, please wait patiently for the signal to turn GREEN before proceeding. Thank you!
