Brian Murphy, Senior Property Manager at Constitution Center, tells Southwest...TLQTC that concrete barriers and construction fences started coming down around the building last night. By the end of the weekend, Murphy expects most of the barriers to be removed. However, some fences will remain for the time being to protect pedestrians from isolated construction. An example is the corner of 7th & D Street, where part of the sidewalk is in the process of being replaced, since it didn't pass inspection. The highly-secure 1.4 million SF building still doesn't have a tenant (what are you waiting for, FBI or Department of Energy?)
Update #1: As of midday Saturday, most of the sidewalk along D Street and 6th Street has been reopened.
Update #2: All sidewalks around Constitution Center are open.
