|Alexander Circle is blocked to walkers and drivers during construction.|
Access is blocked to Alexander Circle as work begins on the development of the site. Signs placed on the street warn drivers and pedestrians that a section of the loop is closed during construction.
Safety is the concern behind the decision to close off the street. Crews are beginning environmental remediation of the site that includes both lead and asbestos removal. Work is also starting on the roofs of the buildings.
“We know that a lot of people like to walk or drive around the loop,” said City Administrator Ron Dill, “but we had to block street and sidewalk access to protect the public during this initial phase of construction.”
Motorists will need to go behind the Mess Hall to reach the ball field during this construction period.
