Facilities Operations Update

Street work – Kingshighway north of Barnes Plaza drive

Sent on behalf of Barnes-Jewish Hospital

On Monday, January 9, 2023, Sachs Electric will begin street work on the Medical Campus that includes work on Kingshighway near Barnes Plaza Drive to support the new tower that is replacing Queeny Tower.

Sachs will be installing a new TFC duct-bank extension across the northbound lanes of Kingshighway from existing TFC manhole #26 in the median. The work will extend eastward from the median to a point on the property of the new tower. This work will include the installation of a concrete enclosed, (4) 4” conduit duct-bank between these two points.

Weather permitting, the planned duration of this work is through close of business, February 14, 2023.

All work will be performed during third shift, beginning at approximately 10 pm and ending at 7 am Monday through Friday (Saturday morning). This includes daily traffic control setup and site preparation.

There will be lane closures during preparation, work, and cleanup, and traffic shifts may also occur in the work area on Kingshighway. Work will begin in the two westernmost, northbound lanes for a duration of 3 weeks, then move to the easternmost, northbound lane for another 2 weeks. During excavation, northbound Kingshighway traffic, north of Barnes Plaza Drive, will be impacted as will traffic turning onto the northbound Kingshighway lanes from Barnes Plaza Drive. The rest of the main intersection should not be significantly impacted. Steel plating will be used to cover all street excavation when there is no work in progress, and all 3 northbound lanes should be usable to traffic during the first and second shifts. Some construction equipment may be staged on or near the street in the work area for the duration of the project.

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 worker safety, Sachs’s vehicles, equipped with warning lights, may be employed to block excavated areas as they are accessed.
