Beginning Monday, September 17, 2012 – A&R Mechanical Services closed the sidewalk at the northwest corner of the City Building. This closure is for the purpose of removing existing sidewalk pavers and constructing landscape planters as part of the streetscape project along the north side of the City Building.
The main entrance to the City Building, on Chester Street, will remain open during this time. However, due to the sidewalk closure, the entrance will not be accessible from the sidewalk along the building’s west side. Instead, pedestrians coming from the south or west must either navigate around the east end of the building and approach the main entrance from the east, or walk along the west side of Neil Street, cross Neil Street at the crosswalk just north of Chester Street, and approach the main entrance from the north.
These alternate routes will be necessary for several weeks, until sidewalk work has moved away from the northwest corner of the building.
The City asks that pedestrians in the area pay attention to traffic control changes and walk with care through the construction zone. City staff apologizes in advance for any inconvenience this work will cause area residents, businesses and visitors and appreciates the cooperation of everyone in order to maintain a safe environment.
