Work on the Phase 3 site accelerated during the favorable weather this fall.
- The foundation for Building #1 has taken shape, and the footprint of the building can be seen from above. An open section of wall at the northeast corner will provide for a vehicular entry from the adjacent planned parking deck.
- Work is underway to connect utility services to the site. Service connections have been made beneath Illinois Street and a storm sewer running through the site has been reconstructed in preparation for construction of the new parking deck.
- Site grading activity, including removal of bedrock for building foundations, is occurring across the site. The grading work is now focused on the new parking deck location, running north-south in the middle of the site.
- New temporary parking has been installed at the north end of First Street, including a 16-space parking lot opposite the plaza.
