Felton Library Construction Update -- 11/20/18 - 12/6/18

As you are all aware, the area has received a series of storms over the last few weeks.  The rain from the storms has slowed down progress on the construction of the library and Thompson Builders has spent much of their time protecting the site and preparing for the pouring of the concrete footings and building slab.  We are hoping these pours can commence the week of 12/10 but will still have to wait to see how much rain the next storm brings.  We are hopeful this can be accomplished soon so work on the building itself can begin. 

More updates and info to follow soon.....

Construction on the new Felton Library is well underway!

Felton Library -- November 20, 2018

Construction on the new Felton Library has begun and is moving forward!  Thompson Builders of Novato, California has been awarded the contract and is proving to be a very valuable partner on this important project for the Felton Community.   So far, the construction team has rebuilt the subgrade for the building foundation and is now preparing to pour the footings and the building slab.  Site utilities are also beginning to be trenched and excavation for the parking lot footprint is being finalized.  Please see the attached photos from the first few weeks of construction.  This perspective is toward the south and will capture the parking lot in the foreground and the installation of the building itself in the background.

Thank you in advance for your patience and partnership during construction.  Disruption in the area should be minimal, and mostly contained within the fenced building site, but over the course of construction there will be occasional needs to encroach into the road.  During necessary road phases of work, proper signage and controls will be in place to ensure public safety in the area. 

If roadwork is taking place adjacent to the project site, please use caution when moving through the area, obey all signage, and please share the road.
