Albany Street between the Albany Street garage and Main Street will be closed until spring to allow space for construction activity including steel erection. Vehicles exiting the garage must turn left. Main Street has been expanded back to two lanes and parking on the north side has been reinstated. Erection of steel continues on the north and south portion of the site and above the railroad tracks, and excavated soil is being hauled away.
Pedestrian and vehicular access to the East Annex parking lot is restricted for about six weeks to allow paving work adjacent to the Stata Center. Pedestrians should use the entrance at Building 66. Deliveries must come down Ames Street and enter through the south side of Building 56. Cyclists may park their bikes outside Building 56. The construction will cause noise, vibration and odors. For further information, contact the Stata Center Project Management Team at 258-6503.
Sign installation and tree planting will continue. Curbing and paving will resume at the intersection of Main Street and Vassar Street. Pedestrians are asked to stay on the sidewalk to avoid conflict with cyclists, who are asked to stay on the cycle track (asphalt pavement).
