Thank You for Your Patience
Here is the latest news for the County Courts Project as of October 21:
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY UPDATE
The contractor is preparing to pour the 4th and final section of roof slab next week. Tendons, rebar, and forms are being secured in place. Forms are being removed from previously poured 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!
For safety reasons, the tower crane operator will not climb the tower in a lightning storm. Due to this morning’s weather, the tower crane was not used today.
SCHEDULED GARAGE LIGHTING POWER DOWN
In order to relocate power lines, the lighting on P4 and P5 will be reduced to emergency lighting only for a short time in the early morning and afternoon on Monday, October 13. The first power down will happen at 6:00 a.m. and the second power down will happen around 2:00 p.m. Both power downs will last about 30 minutes. During the outage, please drive and walk with caution as the lighting will be much dimmer than normal.
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
Demolition of the concrete slabs just north of the Courthouse has begun. This work could create some noise inside the Courthouse. Entry to the Courthouse will not be affected. This work is expected to continue for two to three weeks on the west half of the plaza, and then another one to two weeks on the east half.
111 S. MERAMEC
Just a reminder that 111 S. Meramec is under demolition and NOT a safe place to be. Please stay out!
