  • Construction will create noise, vibration and dust and will disrupt normal neighborhood activity.
  • Traffic control signs will be set up. The contractor will maintain local access, but you should expect delays.
  • On-street parking in or near the work area is prohibited during construction hours. Please plan to move your vehicle by 7:00 a.m.
