Project leaders with Tonn and Blank Construction report that the “big dig” for the foundation of the new six-story Bed Tower is now under way and it could be up to two weeks before it is completed. The major excavation will take three to five weeks because additional shoring needs to be installed.
The primary excavation should not present any new traffic or parking restrictions.
Automobile access from the north (off Stop 11 Road) on the former perimeter road to the loading dock and the physician parking lots behind Medical Office Buildings I and II will remain open.
However, three building exits facing the now-former Heart Center parking lot will be closed due to the construction, one each at D Wing, the Heart Center and Ambulatory Surgery.
