In the two months since I last posted, progress on the new library has been excellent. Since we broke ground in early April, TLT Construction has graded and filled the site and completed work on the foundation. The drainage system and underground utilities were installed. Late in June we had our first delivery of steel and the pictures on this blog and the Library’s web site show the outline of the building taking shape. At this stage the changes on site are quite dramatic. The date for pouring the first and second floor concrete slabs is now August. The utilities will be connected into High Street in August as well.
We continue to meet with the Permanent Building Committee each month and weekly job site meetings are held with the architects and contractor. Construction is on schedule and on budget.
Comments from Town residents have been very positive. The staff and I share your excitement as construction moves forward.
