What To Expect 

As is the case with infrastructure projects in the public right-of-way, you can expect traffic impacts and road or lane closures. One lane of traffic will remain open whenever deemed safe for the public and construction crews. Detours will be implemented, but access for local traffic will be maintained for all residents, businesses and emergency vehicles along the closed road. During construction, the project team will work to minimize inconveniences associated with traffic, construction noise, dust, debris and construction equipment.

The City is committed to working with businesses to minimize disruptions and impacts during construction, and to completing construction with a balance of public safety, coordination with the community and construction efficiency. Driveways will remain open during business hours.

Normal construction hours are Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and neighbors will be notified in advance about changes in work days/work hours.
