Pyramid Construction is planning to lift materials to the roof of the new building’s steel superstructure at 401 Locust Street on Thursday/Friday, November 21-22, 2019.  A crane (larger than the previous one) will be situated in the street to perform the work.  The intended timeline is two (2) days, weather permitting, with the specific goal to finish late Friday (11/22).  Flagger Force traffic control personnel will provide support and signage at strategic places in the one to two block area to minimize convergence of traffic when the crane is operational in the street.  After the Thursday workday the crane will be staged in the north parking lane of Locust Street to allow overnight traffic to flow normally.  Friday work will again start early and close the street until roof material loading is completed.
