Portico Under Construction

Monday, April 4th, 2011

Work has begun on the entrance portico to remove the existing surface and replace it with new tile that will be more attractive as well as more slip- and chip-resistant.  Removal of the existing surface will require some use of jackhammers, but that part of the work will be completed each day by 10 a.m. at the latest.

The project is being done in phases to ensure that one of the front entrances remains accessible throughout.  Currently, that is the left-hand, or west, entrance. Three of the exterior book drops have been temporarily relocated to that side of the portico.
