Square project moves to day shift
By JULIE E. GREENE
Noise from the reconstruction of Public Square is bothering Alexander House residents, forcing construction crews to switch to a daytime shift, officials said Wednesday.
Callas Contractors Inc. crews will start working day hours on Friday, said City Administrator Bruce Zimmerman.
"We were trying to avoid complications with traffic" by having the demolition of the square done at night, Zimmerman said.
The contractor's crew was to work another 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. shift overnight Wednesday and return to work at the square on Friday morning, he said.
Residents at the Alexander House at 7 E. Washington St. were extremely upset by the noise overnight on Monday and Tuesday, said Jean Hettenhouser, manager.
