New Central Library Construction Update
A temporary noise exemption permit has been approved by the City of Calgary, effective nightly from February 4 - 22 from 10pm - 5am.  As part of the final stage of exterior construction on the New Central Library – a multi-day construction program is taking place to remove the remaining temporary encapsulation structure around the LRT line that travels underneath the New Central Library building. This temporary structure has been in place throughout the construction process as a safety measure to protect the LRT passing below from any overhead exterior construction risks. Now that exterior construction on the building is complete, this structure will be removed.
