Dismantling of Ducey Gym to Begin
Tuesday, March 11, 2014
On Wednesday, March 12, PCL Construction Services, the general contractor for the Roberts Pavilion project, begins demolition of Ducey Gymnasium. PCL has assembled a fence around the construction site, which is going to have an effect on foot traffic and cart traffic in the area as well as access to Axelrood Pool. Please see the information below on alternate routes around the construction site during the demolition of Ducey Gym and the construction of Roberts Pavilion.
• The Sixth Street sidewalk on the north side of Sixth Street closest to the construction site and Mills Avenue north of Sixth Street will be closed during construction, as is the ADA ramp at the northeast corner of Sixth Street and Mills Avenue. The sidewalk on the south side of Sixth Street is still open to foot traffic, as are all other ADA ramps at the intersection.
• The sidewalk west of Mills Avenue along the construction site is open to foot traffic only. Carts will need to find alternative paths of travel.
• For access to Axelrood Pool, please use either the gate located at the northwest corner of the pool adjacent to Parents Field just below the old tennis courts, or the gate located at the northeast corner of the pool adjacent to Pritzlaff Field.
Parking at Ducey and Mills Avenue to Close
Monday, March 3, 2014
During the next week PCL Construction Services, the general contractor for the Roberts Pavilion project, will begin mobilizing the construction site. Mobile offices are being installed today and chain link fencing, which will extend all the way around Ducey Gym and Mills Avenue, will be installed the beginning of next week.. We intend to start hard (structure) demolition the week of March 17, 2014.
With the installation of the chain link fencing we are closing that area of Mills Avenue north of Sixth Street and the Ducey Gym parking lot to vehicular parking. If you are currently parked there, we are requesting that you remove your vehicle no later than Monday, March 10, 2014. By Wednesday, March 12, 2014, the site will be enclosed with a gate across Mills Avenue at Sixth Street and access or egress from the site will be very limited. Pedestrian access along the sidewalk on the west side of Mills Avenue from Sixth Street heading north will not be interrupted. Handbills will be placed on windshields later this week.
Your anticipated cooperation is greatly appreciated.
