Re: Highland Bridge: Ford Site Redevelopment

Bohland is finished, (curb and paved) up to Woodlawn from Mississippi Boulevard. Woodlawn, Mount Curve, and Cretin are all ready for curb and paving this spring.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis - News & General Topics

Demo could mean anything coming from the office. I’m not sure if they meant East Hennepin, not Hennepin. 420 is the address. Glam Doll donuts may want to gear up, if it’s East Hennepin.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis - News & General Topics

What is going on 1 block south of 240/Gateway on Hennepin? I got told to gear up for a partial demo, drill and set retention, and a bunch of foundation shotcrete work.

Re: George Floyd murder and aftermath

Essentially the demolition contractors jacked up their prices following the riots, so the city stepped in to help coordinate relief.
Being that I work for one, I can attest to that being untrue. We were already losing work due to the pandemic and the shutdown.

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

The new fence will be 10’ tall, and similar to the one at Azine/2nd where the armored trucks enter.
The base of each post will be a minimum of 2’ into the bedrock; i.e., don’t run into it.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Soil conditions means removing contaminated soil, removing soil that is insufficient for bearing the load that will be placed upon it, or adding a mechanical solution to amend the soil. (Piling, grout columns, soil nails, etc)

Re: Minnesota Governor Election 2022

As pointed out by uptownbro, both sides have issues with how he handled the riots. The rocks and cows certainly have not warmed up to him.
I think Kendall Qualls could win vs Gov. Walz.

The first footings for that building were poured on Thursday. Two weeks to get it completely excavated.

Re: Highland Bridge: Ford Site Redevelopment

Has anyone close to the site been bothered by the blasting? The ‘rock trencher’ was ineffective at carving out the utility trenches. (too wet) There is no way to stay on schedule using excavator mounted hydraulic breakers, so we switched over to blasting last week.
