|St. Louis County Court Construction Update|
Here is the latest news for the County Courts Project:
Thank You for Your Patience
As of December 16:
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY UPDATE
Workers are attaching precast exterior wall sections to the structure starting along S. Central. Inside the new building, workers are measuring and marking where the interior walls will be built. Plumbers and electricians are installing their runs; ductwork is also being installed. In the garage, work continues on new shafts for elevators, stairs, and fresh air circulation; and sprinkler fitters are installing fire sprinkler lines. Steel framing for the future Main Entrance Lobby off of South Central is being hoisted into place. Demolition crews will soon start heavy demolition of the 111 S. Meramec building and have already removed the bridge that connected it to 121 S. Meramec. Inside the existing Courthouse, preparations are being made to build the shaft for the new “in-custody” elevator.
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!
The contractor has to reinforce the foundation walls of 111 S. Meramec to keep them from caving in when the lower levels are demolished!
NOISE INSIDE COURTHOUSE (AFTERNOON WORK SHIFTING TO EAST SIDE)
The contractor is making structural repairs on the Street Level of the Courthouse. This requires some jackhammering that can be heard inside the building, especially in the lower levels of the building. Noisy work has been confined to the hours of 7am-9am, with a break between 9am and Noon, then starts up again at noon and continues the rest of the day. The noise should be intermittent, not continuous. This work is expected to last into December.
METROBUS FREE RIDE ZONE
Metro has adjusted their routes and times. Justin will create an updated timetable shortly.
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!
