Here is the latest news for the County Courts Project:
Thank You for Your Patience
As of November 18:
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY UPDATE
Preparations are being made to attach precast exterior wall sections to the structure. 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, new shafts are being built for elevators, stairs, and to circulate fresh air, and sprinkler fitters are installing fire sprinkler lines. Demolition crews are 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!
Concrete does not cure well in very cold temperatures, so it’s a good thing the structural concrete work was completed before the freezing weather hit!
Starting next week, the alley between 111 and 121 S. Meramec will be closed in order for the demolition of 111 to continue. People who park in the garage at 8011 Bonhomme will still be able to walk north behind 111 S. Meramec to Carondelet Ave.
NOISE INSIDE COURTHOUSE
The contractor is making structural repairs on the Street Level of the Courthouse. This requires some light jackhammering that can heard inside the building, especially in the lower levels on the west half of the building. Noisy work has been confined to the hours of 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., with a break between 9 a.m. 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 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!
