City Offices Construction Update for September 25, 2020

 Project Update

As the building continues to progress, activity on site continues to increase. Vertical construction is tracking well, and activity includes concrete work and steel erection as well as interior framing.

 Construction Activities: 

  • The garage entry scaffolding will be removed from the site the week of September 28.
  • Monday, September 28, the team will be removing plywood, alumi-joists, and mid-span scaffold towers. 
  • The entry and exit lanes to the garage will be closed intermittently as needed for safety between 9 am and 3:30 pm during this week. 
  • On Tuesday, September 29, from 7 am to 11am, the team will be assembling rolling scaffold towers on site, not in ROW. 
  • There will be overnight work on Tuesday, September 29 (possibly Wednesday night as well) from 7 pm to 7 am to remove the large beams. 
    • All lanes will be closed to the garage and cars will be let out on an as-needed basis, but cars should expect up to 20 minute delays when needing to exit during this time.
  • On the afternoon of Wednesday, September 30, the team will be loading beams from the site on to a flatbed truck. 
    • There will be flaggers on Rio Grande Place in the east bound lane for one-way traffic. Both lanes will be closed intermittently during these activities. 
  • The night of Wednesday, September 30 will be reserved as a back-up if any of the work is not completed on time. 

City Offices Construction and COVID-19 Site Safety Measures

Crews continue to make progress on critical path construction activities such as the completion of the structural steel and framing of the exterior walls of the building.

The Aspen City Offices team is dedicated to public safety and the safety of construction crews and will continue to adhere to state and local COVID-19 operational recommendations and regulations as the situation evolves.

Staircase Closure through summer 2021

The blue staircase connecting Rio Grande Place and the plaza (staircase east of the parking garage/plaza) is closed through summer 2021. For alternate access, use Jail Trail or the parking garage elevator.
