Gateway Center concrete pour delayed

PORT ANGELES — Today’s scheduled one-day concrete pour for the Port Angeles International Gateway Transportation Center has been delayed until 7:15 a.m. Monday, in hopes of improved weather.

“Depending upon the weather on Monday, the contractor could cancel and reschedule,” said city spokeswoman Teresa Pierce.

“It’s been too cold,” she said.

“If conditions aren’t just right they’ll have to delay again.

“The contractor said once the temperature gets into the 20s, concrete pours become difficult.”

The concrete pour will require closing Lincoln Street between Railroad Avenue and Front Street so that trucks can access the construction site’s east side, Pierce said.

It also will require flaggers on Railroad Avenue, which will remain open but narrowed to one lane as necessary for truck access.

But Lincoln Street will not be closed at the same time as Laurel Street, Pierce said.

If necessary, closures of Laurel Street will be suspended to accommodate the concrete pouring on Lincoln Street, she said.

Laurel Street has been closed periodically for the city’s downtown sidewalk and watermain project that began in October and is expected to last until April.

The $13.8 million Gateway Center project will include a transit building with a public plaza topped by a pavilion roof, clock tower and a bus lane plus a two-tiered parking garage.

It is being built along Lincoln Street between Railroad Avenue and Front Street. Primo Construction of Carlsborg began construction in June 2007 and is expected to finish in the late summer of 2008.
