LIVING WITH CONSTRUCTION

  • Construction will generally take place Monday to Friday from 7 am to 4 pm
  • Weather or other circumstances could shift the work schedule. You will be informed as conditions warrant.
  • Construction methods will include sewer pipe lining (rehabilitates defective sewers without excavation and surface disruption) and sewer pipe removal and replacement (which requires open trenches, typically where sewers are shallow).
  • In order to minimize disruption in the streets, most of the construction work at each location will be completed in about 5-10 business days.
  • Streets will be temporarily paved during sewer construction. Final paving will be placed when the project is completed.
  • Trucks and other equipment will be used during construction, and you may see open trench excavation, pipes, and debris.
  • Dust control will be provided in all project areas.
  • Enclosures or other barriers will be used in construction areas wherever necessary for public safety.
  • Flaggers will be used where traffic is impacted. Traffic will be restored to normal when construction has been completed at the end of each workday.
  • Trash pickup, deliveries, access to businesses, and access to residential driveways will be maintained.
  • Parking may be temporarily restricted in some areas, and signs will be posted in advance telling you where and when.
  • You will be notified 24-48 hours in advance whenever sewer services may be temporarily interrupted.
