Construction

Construction is underway. Over the last few months, crews removed: 

  • Plants and soil from the landscape planters in the plaza; and,
  • Removed the fountain in the plaza.

Planter Repairs 

Repairs to the planters on both sides of the plaza will be ongoing for the next few months. 

Pavers Installation

We have temporarily stopped this work. We'll have more details soon. 

Road Closure

Fayetteville Street is closed at City Plaza. We'll have more details soon.

Next Steps

 

Crews will be working on the expansion joints for the buildings in the plaza. These are also called movement joints. They connect building material and release stress on the structure from thermal/mechanical movements. This work may require some weekend and overnight work. We will notify nearby businesses ahead of time.
