Deconstruction begins for LO's new City Hall project
June 24 marked the first visible milestone in the new City Hall project. On Monday, buildings at the corner of A Avenue and Third Street began to be deconstructed to make room for the new building. The process is expected to take two to three weeks and be completed by mid-July. Some trees that pose a safety risk or impeded the deconstruction process will be removed. Most of the trees during this phase will be removed near the end of the deconstruction process. The sidewalk on A Avenue will remain open, however portions of the sidewalk on 3rd Street will be closed. Parking will still be available on most of 3rd Street.
Material from the deconstruction of the buildings will be hauled to a regional material sorting facility in Wilsonville where wood, metal and masonry is separated and recycled. While the goal is to recycle 75% of materials, this project anticipates recycling over 90% of the materials.
