  1. What can I expect?


You may see surveyors, large equipment, and field personnel collecting information, locating utilities, and taking soil borings to design of the infrastructure project. Roads may be temporarily closed, and flags or stakes may be placed in the area. 


You can expect heavy equipment and trucks, travel delays, and nuisance dust and noise during construction and installation. Generally, hours of operation for construction are limited to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. M-F or with special approval after hours and weekends.  Roads may be temporarily closed, and utility services shut off temporarily for short periods of time. Delays and changes in travel routes can be expected throughout construction. There may be reduced access to property, sidewalks, and driveways.
