A contractor of ARSC McGraw cleans debris from the beams of the new Petersburg Public Library in order to prepare them for staining and clear coating.

“All of the concrete has been poured inside,” Petersburg Borough On-Site Construction Administrator Dan LaForce said. “We even have the upper deck concrete poured and the work on the inside of the building can go along as planned.”

According to LaForce, the insulation in the roof is coming along and is scheduled to be finished this week.

In an earlier article, it was reported that the floor heating would continue outside to the parking lot and sidewalk. That statement is incorrect and the heating will continue onto the sidewalk along the front of the building but will not be included in the parking lot of the facility.

“At this point we are on schedule and should be finished with the project in July,” LaForce stated. “As long as the weather holds and the roof can be done by this week, there should be no delays.”
