Neilson Library Construction Update, March 7, 2019

Path of crane arrival

On Thursday and Friday, March 7-8, the contractor will be bringing in two construction cranes via Green Street and the Dickinson Parking Lot site entrance. The larger of the two cranes will be in sections on flatbed trucks and will be assembled on site by the smaller of the two cranes in preparation for installing steel columns and beams beginning on Monday of next week.

All steel deliveries over the next few months will be coming onto the site via the Dickinson Lot entrance. The cranes will be situated on the west side of the library as noted on the attached image.

Please note that for the foreseeable future there will be intermittent deliveries of structural steel on vehicles that will need a little extra room to navigate onto the site. This will require several spaces in the Dickinson Parking Lot to be kept open with traffic cones. In many, but not all cases the shipments will be first thing so that spaces can be opened up for the day.

Thanks to all for your patience.
