Residents and businesses are advised that on-street parking may not be accessible at times, but pedestrian access will be maintained.

Please obey all traffic control personnel and signage when driving in the vicinity of the construction. 


Resident Impacts

Throughout the construction period, vibratory compaction equipment will be in use; therefore, any fragile items should be packaged or protected from damage due to vibration. There may also be noise disruption due to equipment on site. 

Garbage collection will not be affected.

Work will begin on March 21 and is expected to be complete by the end of June. Construction is scheduled to occur Monday–Friday, 7:00 am–5:30 pm. Some evening or weekend work may be required.
