Noisy work ahead for crews building La Crosse’s River Point project



The sounds of pumping water and cutting through concrete will be heard frequently this spring and summer at the River Point construction site in La Crosse.

Contractors putting up housing and other buildings asked Monday the La Crosse Board of Public Works for permission to do the water pumping and cutting at night. Those buildings are going up now at the construction site between the riverfront and Copeland Avenue.

The board approved a limited exemption for noise levels at the River Point project site, off Copeland Avenue. Hours of overnight work are expected to take place between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m.

The exemption on construction noise may last into October, and the current project could be finished by December, according to city documents.
