As part of site work, a gas line began to leak on the construction site at around 8:30 a.m. The Albany Fire Department and National Grid responded immediately. Working with our construction partners, the leak was repaired shortly thereafter. Disruption to the neighborhood was minimal, and by 9:30 a.m. all returned to normal.

Beginning next week and continuing approximately through the month of August, the site is expected to receive four or five deliveries of concrete for the building foundation per day. Large trucks will enter and exit the site through the designated construction entrance on Academy Road at intervals between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Our construction partners are taking steps to ensure minimal disruption throughout this phase of the project.
