    Construction Impacts

    What to expect

    The contractor, City project team and inspectors will be on site. We will make every effort to minimize impacts.

    • Work hours are 7:00 am – 7:00 pm. In some cases, work may extend past 7:00 pm.
    • The contractor will leave a 24-hour notice on your door before work begins. The street must be clear of vehicles or other materials. 
    • Watch for no parking signs. Vehicles may be towed at the owner's expense if left on the street at the time of paving.  
    • Mail and package delivery will continue during construction 
    • Garbage haulers will be notified.
    • Prior to construction, locate crews may mark the street to indicate the location of underground utilities. 
    • Trees and shrubs must be trimmed to allow full access to the street. Notices will be provided if vegetation maintenance is required.
    • Utility locate paint markings on street, sidewalk and private property—anywhere an underground utility is located.  
    • Weather can impact schedules. 

      Construction steps

      1. Remove existing sidewalk curb materials, install sloped ramps to provide improved safety at pedestrian crossings.
      2. Street reconstruction preparation. Construction equipment and materials will be parked on the street.  Project street signs will be posted.
      3. Existing pavement will be ground and milled to prepare the base of the street.
      4. Street shaping, grading and compaction will occur. 
      5. Paving (If it is raining, paving will be delayed). Asphalt is applied and then rolled smooth.  
      6. On larger streets, there may be striping - paint for lanes, bike lanes, etc.
