Construction within each of the three project groups will occur simultaneously.
Construction will take place Monday through Friday, with occasional weekend work to occur on an as-needed basis to minimize traffic disruptions.
Construction will take place between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., with occasional nighttime work to occur as needed, to minimize traffic disruptions.
Construction activities that require temporary road closures and/or detours will be clearly marked by signage to assist motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists navigate through and around construction zones. In some cases, flagmen will be present to direct traffic. Temporary road closures and detour information will also be posted on the alerts page.
Normal access to properties will be affected as construction progresses along the project segments. Property owners will be notified prior to activities impacting normal access. Construction crews will work to minimize the duration of disruption and will ensure an alternate access route is maintained as necessary.
Interruption of water service may occur but is expected to be minimal and of short duration as services are transferred to the newly installed pipes. Property owners will be notified in advance of all scheduled interruptions of service through door-hanger notifications or other means of communication.
