Thank You for Your Patience
Here is the latest news for the County Courts Project as of July 15:
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY UPDATE
Workers are placing forms and reinforcing steel, plus sleeves for piping and electrical conduit in preparation for pouring the second section of the Level 1 floor slab and beams next week. New shafts are being created to circulate fresh air into the garage levels. Elevator pit excavation and foundation strengthening continue on P5. Light demolition on P4 (workers will soon begin erecting dust partitions). The new beam along the south edge of the P1 level is nearly complete.
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 temporary 4x4 wooden posts on the P2 and P3 levels are called “re-shores.” Each can safely hold 5,000 pounds.
8011 BONHOMME GARAGE ACCESS
Beginning August 4, parkers in the Bonhomme Garage will no longer be able to access the garage via 111 and 121 South Meramec. A follow-up email will be sent to those parkers describing alternate routes to the County Government Campus.
SHORING IN COURTS GARAGE
Wooden posts (re-shores) have been erected in the south portion of P3. Some cross the exit lane from the Courts Garage, but there is a 12-foot wide gap for traffic to pass through. Please drive carefully around these posts.
P2 BONHOMME ENTRANCE
The entrance lane has been reopened. Still only reserved parking on P2 for now.
There is currently 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!
