We are moving right along on construction over at Belcourt! As planned, blasting and drilling have been occurring at a steady pace. Major blasting should be complete in early September. We are currently on schedule for the opening of the parking garage in Spring 2019.
Blasting times are scheduled for 9am, 11am, and 1pm (with an additional backup blast, if needed, at 3pm). There may be days that blasting will occur less than three times during the day, but they will still occur at the scheduled times. The area along Belcourt and the alley adjacent to the jobsite will close to pedestrian and vehicular traffic for approximately six minutes at those times, if there is going to be a blast.
Schedule of Alerts:
- A warning signal (a series of three long blasts from an air horn) will sound five minutes before the blast
- Vehicular and pedestrian traffic will be stopped along Belcourt and the alley beside Hopdoddy
- A warning signal (a series of three short blasts from an air horn) will sound one minute before the blast
- An all clear signal (one prolonged blast from the air horn) will sound after inspection of the blast
