Construction crews will be on-site providing layout stakes for the contractor, marking utilities, mobilizing traffic control signage, and installing soil erosion control measures. Please do not remove the stakes as they are needed to properly align construction of the underground utilities and roadway. We understand the importance of site restoration and will keep you informed as each phase of construction progresses.
Roads under construction will be closed to through traffic during construction. Local traffic will be maintained, but progress may be slow at times as temporary road closures will need to occur for short durations while the Contractor performs the work and mobilizes equipment.
