Tour of the Construction Site of the Renovated Library

The tour is moderately strenuous and will be hot so feel free to bring a water bottle with you. The good news is that there is a construction “elevator” that can take folks to each level in lieu of the stairs as needed.

Parking is available in the Central Ground Garage. You can exit at the rear of the 2nd level, turn left on Newcomb, and make your way down to the trailer. There is a security checkpoint, but they will be expecting you and direct you to the trailer.

Please note that you will need to wear the following personal protection gear to enter the construction site;

  • A sturdy pair of closed toes boots or equivalent - no sneakers or sandals
  • Long pants
  • Long sleeve shirt preferred

Skanska will provide you with a safety vest, safety glasses, gloves, and hard hat before accessing the site.


3:30 to 3:45 Arrive at Skanska Trailer

3:45 to 4:00 Skanska will distribute PPE gear and give a short “safety” talk

4:00 to 5:00 Tour the site
