Residents Unhappy with Construction

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.

      Sounds good. I’ll call you at your house every morning when they start up. I’m sure you won’t worry about something that will pass.

        Isn’t it funny how people who aren’t impacted say it’s no big deal? I would be furious if it was in my neighborhood. You should call all the city council first thing when it starts.

    I would suggest moving out to the country or a less populated area if they like peace and queit, not living in the middle of downtown in a heavily populated college town! What about the fire truck sirens that go off down there all hours of the day and night…should we shut them down during the “queit time” too? Maybe we should also shut down the early and late bus routes too- they are pretty noisy…
