DEHART STREET: CONSTRUCTION

The Metropolitan Lofts apartment building located at 11 DeHart Street will need to implement alternative DeHart Street Garage access procedures to install scaffolding and steel infrastructure in the coming weeks.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

The new building will be constructed over the parking ramp to the DeHart Street Garage. During this phase of construction, the entrance and exit ramp located on DeHart Street will be closed 8:30am to 5:00pm to ensure public safety. All traffic will be directed in and out of the Maple Avenue entrance/ temporary exit. Traffic officers will be onsite to coordinate access. A temporary loading zone will occupy 4 on-street parking spaces on Market Street during the closure of the Right of Way (11/17-21).

TIMELINE:

Scaffolding Installation:

Wednesday, November 9 through Friday, November 11

Steel Installation:

Thursday, November 17 through Monday, November 21 (including weekend)

Important: DeHart Street Right of Way access will be CLOSED to pedestrians and vehicles 8:30am to 5:00pm, 11/17-11/21. All deliveries must enter the Right of Way from the Market Street Piazza or through the front entrance of your business.

CONSTRUCTION HOURS:

9:00am to 5:00pm on the days listed above.

Protective bridge scaffolding will be installed over the parking garage ramp. The scaffolding in the Right of Way (ROW) will be installed at a later date, after the structural steel has been installed. The protective cover is designed to provide safety to pedestrians and vehicles during construction and allow normal business activities to continue in this area. The scaffolding over the DeHart Street ROW will be 16? high in order to accommodate delivery truck access. Additional coordination of deliveries and debris removal may be required. Please plan accordingly.
