The pinging that you will hear beginning later this week is the noise of progress at the CityMarket at O construction site. The pinging will be coming from pile drivers that will be driving piles around the four edges of the project site on O, 7th, 9th and P Streets. (From Wikipedia, a pile driver is a mechanical device used to drive piles into soil to provide foundation support for buildings or other structures.)
The historic market facade has now been stabilized and secured to withstand the excavation and WILL NOT be disturbed.
Construction hours on the site are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and pile driving is anticipated to last through January 2012.
We apologize in advance for the noise and appreciate your patience.
Just remember, pinging = progress in Shaw in 2012.
