Capitol West Demo Goes Late Into The Night, Early Into The Morning

UPDATE: The city says night work is done.

We got a complaint about the Capitol West building through our website that went like this:

“I [live] nearby and it is 2 in the morning on a Tuesday, why are they demolishing the building now? I have to work in a few hours. Ahh that’s right the people in charge live in the valley.”

Seems strange, right?  So we asked.  Turns out because of the need to close an I-84 off ramp, demolition is in fact happening in the wee hours.  In fact, the city says the permits to knock down the blighted building near the capitol allow work between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. to accommodate the interstate.  So, sorry, folks.  You’re in for some noisy nights.

But here’s the good news:  The city says the work is tentatively scheduled to end tomorrow.  The noise variance goes through Thursday.
