Dear Neighbors,

Thank you for your interest in the Leggett Building construction project at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. We will strive to keep our neighbors informed about significant construction events with this weekly email notification.

Upcoming events are listed below:

  • Demolition
    Debris will continue to be sorted and removed from Falcon Hall. Demolition activities of Falcon Fall foundation walls and structure will continue. Demolition of Science South began on March 16 and will continue the week of March 22.
  • Site Utilities
    Utility installation demolition and new installation are underway adjacent to the Commons Building and Takoma Avenue. Activities will include layout, saw cutting, pavement removal, and earthwork. Layout and on-site and off-site excavation for new incoming domestic water line from Takoma Avenue will be performed. Beginning as soon as March 22 and depending on weather, water line crossing will start on Takoma Avenue. These activities will include traffic control on Takoma Avenue, new equipment or material deliveries, and the use of dumpsters or material removal. After this work is complete, the asphalt, landscaping, and curb components of Takoma Avenue will be restored. During this construction period, any trench will be backfilled, and street access will be restored after 3 p.m. each day through 9 a.m. the following morning.
  • Earthwork
    Signage is being installed to notify the community that the east side of Fenton Street sidewalk is closed, and that there are construction vehicles entering and exiting the site. Barton Malow has met with the City of Takoma Park construction manager to identify locations for the signs, and they have authorized this closure. The temporary removal of a tree adjacent to the new water line location of the campus side of Takoma Avenue will begin on or around Friday, March 19, in coordination with the City’s arborist and BMC project arborist. The tree will be removed and installed offsite during the water line work. The tree will be transplanted back to its original location at the completion of the water line work.
  • Site Power/Lighting
    New temporary perimeter site lighting will be laid out within the construction fence and not in the grove of trees along Takoma Avenue. Telephone poles will be installed using a small auger truck. Power to these new fixtures will be run once they are installed. The lay out and installation of the power for the relocation of an existing emergency generator at Science North will begin as well.
