MarketFront Pavilion Construction

Starting January 6th, the MarketFront Pavilion will be closed due to construction work. The west side of the Pavilion will be fenced off to provide a safe area for work crews and to allow public access to outdoor areas of the plaza. The first phase of construction activity will be the noisiest component of the work and is scheduled for the month of January weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  No weekend work is currently planned. Work is expected to be completed by the end of April. As the project progresses, we will keep you posted.
