What to Expect
Residents and business in and around work areas should expect traffic delays, dust, noise, and heavy equipment – all common elements of planing and paving. We are committed to providing a work site that is safe and orderly.
The work will include traffic being controlled with Traffic Control Personnel. Every effort will be made to minimize the disruption to residents in order to complete the work, however you should expect some traffic delays. We also ask that motorists take extra care to ensure worker and pedestrian safety while travelling through work areas.
Working hours are generally 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. It should be anticipated that the contractor might choose to work longer hours and weekends to complete the work, on schedule.
Individuals with special needs who may be uniquely impacted by this project should contact the Project Manager as soon as possible to make them aware of your situation. We will work with you in an attempt to minimize your inconvenience as much as possible.
