Sent on Behalf of BJC:
Starting Wednesday, May 18, Sachs Electric began street work on the Medical Campus that includes work on Clayton Avenue, Euclid Avenue and Barnes Plaza between Boyle Avenue and Kingshighway Boulevard. Sachs will be installing new, TFC underground fiber optic cables that will extend from the BJC @ the Commons Building (aka AOB) to the hospital on Barnes Plaza and to the Becker Medical Library on Euclid Avenue at Barnes Plaza.
The path for the cable installation is anticipated to run east/west on Clayton Avenue more to the north of the Clayton Avenue center line. The path on Euclid Avenue will be north/south, toward the easterly side of the Euclid Avenue center line. The path on Barnes Plaza will be east/west, more to the north of the Barnes Plaza center line. This underground work will require extensive access to the TFC manhole system on the campus along the entire route.
Weather permitting, the planned duration of this work is through close of business on Tuesday, May, 31. All street work will be done during prime (daytime) shifts, beginning daily at 7:30am and ending at 3:30pm each day. There are no anticipated street closures involved but intermittent lane obstructions and traffic shifts will occur.
The Sachs crew will provide traffic and safety control to include flagmen, cones, plating (where appropriate) and warning signs during all work times. To ensure safety, Sachs vehicles may be employed to block the manholes as they are accessed. All confined space access has been permitted by BJC Health & Safety.
Please direct any questions or concerns to Tony Noto at 314-362-3432 or 314-304-0953 or Tim Rand at 314-362-0040.
