NYSEG’s contractor, Maxim, will be returning to the site this week to continue the installation of the electrical service for the Harold’s Square project. They will be excavating along the west sidewalk of the park from the construction fence up to the vault on Green Street.
A new manhole and storm sewer will be installed in Home Dairy Alley and moving west over the course of the next three days. Pedestrian traffic will be diverted through Center Ithaca during regular business hours due to the closure of the alley.
Due to a break in the weather, and the rain ending early this evening, a concrete pour is currently scheduled for tomorrow morning, Wednesday, November 7. Trucks will pour the entire third floor and expect to work from 7am to 3pm. Finishing work will continue into the night. The amount of time needed depends on how long the concrete takes to cure.
This Friday will see the pouring of the next deck of concrete. Rebar has been set and the team has been waiting for a break in the weather. Concrete trucks will deliver the concrete before noon on Friday, with troweling continuing until 7pm. There will be no work on Saturday so as not to disturb Wizarding Weekend activity.
NYSEG’s contractor will be starting to install the electrical service for the Harold’s Square project over a 2-week period starting this Saturday, October 13th. On Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday the work will be done inside the construction zone. Starting Wednesday, excavation for the vault will include trenching down the sidewalk along the east side of city hall parking lot. This activity will take all of the remainder of next week. Once the installation is complete (week of the 22nd) they will be working along the north side of Green St. removing sidewalk and trenching for new conduits. This phase of the operation will take another full week.
Backfilling on the Commons will continue this week. There were some delays due to illness and weather but it should wrap up by the end of the week and the shoring can then be removed. The masons are nearing completion of their work on the east and west of the property, allowing for the steel work to resume on the site. Steel placement will dominate the site in the coming weeks.
Backfilling will continue on the Commons this week with Paolangeli contractors bringing approximately eight trucks per day. Following this operation will be shoring removal.
