Gantry Crane Removal at Avenue Station January 14, 2021

What Work is Taking Place?

As early as Thursday January 14, 2021, crews at Avenue Station will begin to disassemble and remove the overhead gantry crane (depicted above) located at the Secondary Entrance site. The gantry crane will be disassembled piece-by-piece and trucks will transport the pieces to an off-site facility. Traffic control personnel will be present to facilitate truck entry and egress from the work zones.

Disassembly and removal of the gantry crane is expected to take place Monday to Saturday between 7:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m. for approximately three (3) weeks; however, overnight work will be required between Thursday January 21 and Saturday January 23, 2021. While crews endeavor to perform nosier works during the day, associated overnight work will be required to facilitate safe lifting operations.

What to Expect

Use of an additional crane to lift and load the gantry crane pieces onto transport trucks is required. Short-term traffic interruptions will be required while trucks enter and exit the work zone; expect delays while travelling through the intersection. Overnight noise from construction activities, including truck traffic, crane movements and material loading, can be expected.
