Streetcar Weekly Update: November 18, 2013

Posted on Updated on

For the week of November 18, 2013, the streetcar will continue installation of rail and proceed with track construction near Findlay Market. The Maintenance & Operations Facility site continues a two-week process of installing new sewers as backfilling nears completion. As part of the city’s construction contract, the project is also involved with repairing public utilities. Here’s what to expect:

  • Concrete base work for the track will continue on Elm Street between 12th and Green streets.
  • Rail installation will continue on Elm Street between 15th and Wade streets. Work will start on Elm between Wade and Green streets.
  • Replacement of granite pavers will continue on Elm Street.
  • Existing pavement removal will start on Elm Street near Green Street.
  • Pier work for the building foundation will start at the Maintenance & Operations Facility. (Piers anchor deep into sturdy soil to support the weight of the building, making it structurally sound.)
