Thank You for Your Patience
Here is the latest news for the County Courts Project as of August 12:
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY UPDATE
The contractor is preparing for the third and fourth pours required to complete the Level 1 deck and beams (weather permitting, the thirdpour will happen on Friday, August 8th). Workers are placing forms and reinforcing steel plus sleeves for piping and electrical conduit in preparation for pouring the 4th section next week. New shafts are being created to circulate fresh air into the garage levels. Elevator foundations and shafts are being built on P5. Light demolition on P4 and P3.
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!
Special chemicals, called “superplasticizers,” are added to the wet concrete to make it more fluid and allow it to be pumped through tubes into the elevated forms.
P2 BONHOMME ENTRANCE
If tomorrow’s concrete pour goes ahead (weather permitting) the EXIT lane will be temporarily closed and all traffic in-and-out of the P2 level will be through the ENTRANCE lane. Exiting drivers should yield to incoming drivers.
SHORING IN COURTS GARAGE
Wooden posts (“re-shores”) have been erected in the south portion of P3. Some cross the downramps between levels and 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.
8011 BONHOMME GARAGE ACCESS
Parkers in the Bonhomme Garage can no longer access the garage via 111 & 121 South Meramec.
METROBUS FREE RIDE ZONE
Metro has updated their departure timetables! Contact Justin if you need the updated version!
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!
