Update #21

Charles Park Weekly Construction Update For Week Beginning: 10/10/22

Saturday 10/7/2022

The large crane that is setup in the Rogers courtyard will be used for a couple more crane picks up to the roof and then it will be disassembled. The disassembly and removal of the crane of the site will take approximately 6 hours to complete. The first step will be to take the jib off of the crane. In order to do this, Rogers Street will be closed from First Street to the Parking Garage entrance at Rivercourt. This will only last 1/2 hour and the rest of the work will be performed within the site fencing. Commodore Builders will have staff in place to direct pedestrians, vehicles and tenants of Rivercourt around the work area.

The fireproofing contractor will also be working on site spraying exterior columns at the perimeter of the Rogers Courtyard.

All work will be performed within the City of Cambridge noise ordinance.

Please see the two- week construction look ahead schedule for the week beginning: 10/10/22 at Charles Park in Cambridge, MA.
