The Red Bridge is Open!
Principal Riverwalk Red Multi-Use Trail Bridge over the Des Moines River is now open to trail users. Work is substantially complete with only minor work remaining, including seeding around the bridge approaches. Trail users will notice there are new stairs and ramps at each end of the bridge to meet the elevated bridge (4.5 feet higher). The new LED lights will be on tonight!
Below is a link to a time-lapse video of the Red Bridge raising:
Garage Continues to Go Vertical Up to 4th Floor
Ryan Companies is working on the slab on deck pour #12 (out of 20) for the 4th floor (of the 6 floor garage). Ryan Companies will continue to work on deck construction, columns, pedestrian walls, and other work as the garage continues to go vertical in February. Ryan Companies is scheduled to work on stair and elevator towers in March.
Installation of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing equipment is ongoing with the majority of the work in the basement, first floor, and shafts that run from the basement to the attics.
Demolition of existing walls and ceilings has uncovered deteriorated conditions such as pipes, which will be replaced while they are accessible.
