NEWS: Deconstruction on the City Hall block is proceeding on schedule, and structural demolition should be complete by early April. Backfilling of the site should be complete by early May. For safety reasons, the sidewalk surrounding the City Hall block will be fenced for the duration of this phase of the work. There will not be media access to the site itself.
Deconstruction to this point has revealed additional weaknesses and challenges in the original building construction, confirming that reconstruction would have been more difficult and costly even than previously estimated.
The new Eugene City Hall is being designed now, and construction is scheduled to begin late this year or early next year. The project is on track to meet the goal of re-using or recycling 95% of the existing building materials. For more information about the City Hall project, please visit www.eugenecityhall.com.
