Ongoing Construction Update
Demolition of the Center Ramp will occur in April 2018, after the North Ramp is partially re-opened. This will be an active construction site for more than one year. When complete in September 2019, this site will feature new apartment homes, new retail shops, and 100+ stalls of indoor customer parking all centered around a series of pedestrian ways and public plazas.

Market Street Construction Update:
Feb. 23, 2018
Feb. 23, 2018
North Ramp Expansion
A&P will continue to form the new fourth level of the ramp and pour concrete. This week, the two new stairways should be poured. Floors and columns will continue to be formed and poured. Expect to see concrete trucks during normal construction hours. This work will occur behind the construction barricade with limited impact to businesses.
For the week of March 5, excavation will begin to allow for installation of the concrete foundations that will support the large tower crane. In an effort to keep Market Street open as much as possible, the City has decided to use a tower crane to build the expansions on the two vacant parcels. The tower crane will be erected in Mid-March. After the new crane is in place, the construction barricade will be shifted to allow for a safe working area to be created next to the Center Ramp. One-way traffic (eastbound) will typically remain available until the North Ramp is complete in September 2018.
