EUGENE, Ore. — A group of downtown residents are unhappy with early morning construction at the Capstone Construction site near 13th and Willamette. Residents said crews began work at 6:00 a.m. Saturday morning, which they said is far too early.
Earlier in the week the contracting company applied to start pouring concrete and the site at 4:30 a.m. But, neighbors at the Florence Apartments said they are already woken up at 7:00 a.m. each morning with the construction noise.
Saturday, residents said crews began construction even earlier. “I understand people have to work and I understand that they have deadlines and stuff. But I think those are their issues and they should figure out how to deal with those and we shouldn’t have to deal with the brunt of it,” said Jason Soley, Florence Apartments resident.
A few apartment residents shot video of the early morning start and plan on following up with the city to see if this early construction is allowed.
