Duke Energy will be performing utility work around the construction site on March 16-17 which will have traffic impacts between the hours of 9a.m. and 4 p.m.  Roberson Street traffic will be detoured to use the Main Street intersection instead of S. Greensboro Street. Maple Avenue residents will continue to use E. Carr Street and Maple Avenue Extension. Flaggers and temporary signs will be used to direct traffic.  

On March 14, an early morning concrete pour is scheduled for the first floor slab.  The pour will begin around 3 a.m. with concrete deliveries continuing throughout the morning.

In other updates, the site foundations and footings are nearly complete with more construction trades beginning to mobilize onsite.
