The project has had a few unexpected surprises, including the need to do asbestos abatement in most of the public area and replace plumbing pipes where the new restroom fixture work is occurring. These surprises have added construction time to the original 6 month project estimate. The latest projection for the reopening date is now expected for early 2018.
The work goes on!
Construction crews have removed damaged ceiling tiles in preparation for the installation of new and brighter lighting and new ceiling tiles. The electrical work needed for the new lighting will be done while the ceilings are open.
