This is a construction site and in many of the areas heavy equipment will be present. Much of this work is on deep infrastructure requiring deep holes. The Contractor will be making efforts to secure holes and equipment at night. Please do not cross any barriers or climb on equipment for your own safety.
The affected roads will be closed but will stay accessible to residents in the immediate construction area throughout the project, except for short periods of time when pipe will be installed across the roads. Individual driveway access will be interrupted during periods of time for a few hours, but in all cases will be restored by the end of the workday.
Driveways and Restoration
Driveways that are disrupted during construction will be replaced at the same location, and equal in size and type to the existing drive. Temporary driveway material will also be placed and maintained to provide access to residences during construction. Disturbed grass areas will be restored with topsoil, seed, fertilizer, and mulch.
If you have underground sprinklers installed along the road, please mark the heads and approximate locations of the pipe and if possible, remove the heads. The Contractor will attempt to avoid damaging irrigation systems however if they are damaged, they will repair them.
The Contractor will make the necessary arrangements with the postal service to assure uninterrupted mail delivery.
The Contractor will make the necessary arrangements with the appropriate waste management companies to assure uninterrupted garbage pickup. Please write your name and address on your garbage bin in a visible location to assist in returning your bin to the proper house.
Many of the water services within the project area will be replaced up to the meter in the building, or up to 18 inches into the building if the meter is located within the right-of-way. If your water service is scheduled for replacement, the contractor will be contacting you during the construction period to schedule your water service replacement. The contractor will temporarily require access into your building prior to and during installation.
