Early Morning Concrete Pouring (Core5 Warehouse) Starting May 4th at 4 am
As part of the construction schedule associated with the land development of the Core5 Warehouse Project, early morning concrete pouring will begin at 4 am on Wednesday, May 4th, and will run approximately every other weekday until May 20th. There will be additional dates - following the above - for concrete pours, at which time the construction company will provide notice to the Township and neighbors. The Township approved the construction request to work outside normal working hours. Core5 Warehouse is located at 505 – 515 Wambold Road, between Fretz and Schoolhouse Roads.
The construction activity will include lighting on-site, concrete delivery trucks and concrete finishing equipment. All lighting should be directed toward the site and areas of work for safety and avoidance of light bleeding onto neighboring properties. A circulation route has been established with the concrete supplier and concrete contractor to avoid unnecessary backup beepers as requested by the Township, although some may be necessary at times.

Participants will leave with a planter that is ready to be attached to their downspout. All necessary supplies, including native plant plugs, will be provided. There will be options for either sun or shade plants.
